When to Plant and How to Treat Bulbous Flowers - About Manchester - About Manchester
Summer-blooming bulb flowers
This group of plants includes Lilies, Lycoris, summer-flowering Camassia, Allium, etc. In some cases, it is possible to plant species with a later flowering period in early spring, having previously organized a cooling period for them. However, you need to understand that in this case we are using forcing methods, which means that the flowering of tulips and hyacinths will be shorter, and the bulb will be weaker.
3) Non-hibernating bulbous flowers
It should be said about the bulbous and corms that do not survive cold weather. These are such plants as Gladiolus, Tigridia, Ixia, and others. They are also planted in spring, and they bloom, as a rule, in late summer and autumn. This is because they need lots of sunny days to bloom. For this reason, some species may not have time to bloom in some areas until frost. The solution is early spring growing when the bulb is planted in a pot indoors, and when the threat of frost has passed, it is moved to the garden.
After flowering, you need to take care of tulips. Bulbous plants need watering during the growing season and good drainage during the dormant period. Spring-blooming flowers can be additionally fertilized in autumn. However, you should be careful because bulbous plants also suffer from overfed. Good luck!

Gardening: Time's right to plant bulbs for spring flowers
Scilla, another favorite of mine, are a deep purple, and look down. Small, but intense.Last year I planted several Camassia, a late-spring or early summer blooming bulb plant. They were wonderful! Each plant produces a few flower spikes that are two or three feet tall and are covered with blue or purple florets. Very dramatic. They are hardy to Zone 4. Unlike most bulb plants, they do well in wet or moist soils in winter.Alliums are in the onion family, are wonderful, and are not bothered by rodents. Some are huge, with balls nearly a foot wide that are airy and open, filled with little florets. The big ones can be expensive ($4 a bulb or more) but last a long time and are very dramatic. Even a half a dozen big ones will make a statement.So get off the couch, get outside and plant some bulbs.

Don't limit your choices when planting spring-blooming bulbs
A. You must mean the native Camassia or quamash, a 2-foot-tall spring bloomer native to the mountain meadows of the Cascade Mountains.
This deer-and-rodent-resistant bulb was an important food source for Native Americans and the early pioneers. Now you can order the bulbs from commercial growers in the Netherlands so native meadows will not be damaged by plant poachers.
The camassia is blue in the wild but the starry flowers now also come in pink, white and a shorter variety with variegated foliage called Camassia Blue Melody.
Unlike most spring-flowering bulbs the Camassia likes a bit of moisture in the soil, even during the summer months. Casmassia bulbs can be found for sale at local garden centers now or you can order the different varieties from a bulb grower online.
Time to spread the garden gossip on this native plant. Camassia blooms, although tall, colorful and impressive don't last very long. Mine were in flower for less than a week last spring but the yellowing foliage persisted for months.

Dixonville woman stays active growing lillies and gardening
Hebard and her husband, Gerald, got into the business of growing Christmas trees. At one time, they had 80,000 trees in the ground on property in the Camas Valley, Rice Hill and Dixonville areas. The two did most of the work themselves, caring for and trimming the trees. They retired from that business in the early 1990s.Hebard also found time to raise a large vegetable garden in her backyard. She backed off from that responsibility three years ago.“My mom has been a gardener ever since I can remember,” said Linda Sheridan, Hebard’s oldest of four children. “To think of a 90-year-old out in the yard, I totally admire her for doing it. I do worry about her because she has some trouble walking now and getting up and down, but it is something she enjoys so much. That is why she still does it.“I admire somebody who is 90, who wants to be active and doesn’t want to sit in a chair and waste away,” she added.Linda and her husband, Edward, live about a quarter mile from Hebard’s house so they stay in close contact. Gerald Hebard died in 2013 so Paula Hebard lives by herself.Edward Sheridan helps out by mowing Hebard’s lawn.“The flowers … they are all hers,” Linda Sheridan said of her mother caring for the lilies.Hebard had hand watered everything in her yard, constantly moving hoses and sprinklers, up until three years ago when an underground watering system was installed. She admits watering her flowers is now easier, but there are still those weeds that she must continue to pull. And she and her yard must cope with squirrels and moles and the occasional deer that are quick to get through the gate of her fenced yard if it is left opened. Those critters also like her flowers, but to eat.“One time the gate was open for just a short time, but that quickly there were twin fawns bedding down under a tree over there,” Hebard said. “I chased them out. I like to watch them, but when they’re outside the gate.”For exercise at the gym, Hebard’s goal is to pedal for 2 miles on a bicycle machine and to do some light weight repetitions on a couple of other machines. The yard and fitness center exercise has kept her healthy enough that she enjoyed a land tour of Alaska in May to celebrate her 90th birthday, and she and Linda Sheridan are planning a St. Lawrence River cruise in October.“I’m blessed to still have her,” Sheridan said of her mother. “I want to be as active as she is when I’m in my 90s.“Mom can be very stubborn,” the daughter added. “She doesn’t want people to feel sorry for her. She still has a ‘I can do it myself’ attitude.”The beauty of Hebard’s lilies are evidence of that. (NRToday.com)
