Planting Bulbs with the Warmer Winter
I've got some crocus and dutch iris bulbs. I haven't planted them yet (Dec. 7th). With this years unseasonably warm temperatures, can I still get them in the ground even after the planned snow this weekend?
Yes you can, but it would be better to try to get them in the ground Saturday Dec 8 before Sundays cold rolls in. If you can't, try to do it during the next warm dry spell. After planting, cover the planting area and a foot or so out from planting area with a mulch (wood chips, straw, etc) about 3" thick. Water to settle mulch. The mulch will help soil underneath stay a little warmer.
