Tips for Planting Summer Blooming Bulbs

Who doesn’t love the amazing colors of beautiful summer-blooming flowers! It’s certainly something well worth looking forward to when we are in the throes of the long cold winter months. In the blink of an eye, winter will soon be over and summer blooming flowering bulbs such as dahlias, tuberous begonias, canna lilies, and gladiolus can be planted in the spring safely, once after any danger of frost has passed.
