Bulbs
Soon that bright color of tulips, daffodils, and crocus will fade, have been picked or have just withered away what should be done? Once the flowers have bloomed, you should deadhead the flower to the stalk base so that the plant will not use its energy to produce seeds. As for what to do with the foliage, wait until bulb foliage starts to turn brown (this indicates the bulb is finished storing energy for next years flower) then cut it down.

As we approach May 15th which is the last official day of frost, it is time to think about adding that wonderful burst of color to your garden. Leydon Landscaping can help you choose and install which annuals to use for that special spot in your garden.
