Beyond Tulips: Spring Bulbs Worth the Digging

Saturday, October 19

1:30 – 3:30 pm

Geophytes — the botanical term for perennial plants that grow from underground bulbs — are a valuable component to all spring-flowering gardens. While tulips and daffodils are the well-known celebrities, there are other worthwhile geophytes to include in your landscape. Some aren’t touched by squirrels or deer, while others tolerate wet soils, and some make great additions to containers. Take home a sampling of lesser-known spring-flowering bulbs to plant this fall in your garden.

Instructor: Jamie Burghardt

After registering, you will receive a reminder email with further information TWO DAYS prior to the event.
