What to plant when
I'm new to gardening. We've spent the summer, so far, taking out the stuff we don't want--now it is time to think about planting.
I understand I can plant perennials anytime--is that so? I'm beginning to think it's really getting a bit late...
Spring Bulbs are to be planted in the fall about a week or so before the first snow, right? I did plant some only a few hours before our first snow one year (and it didn't go away). They were a joy to see that following Spring!
And shrubs. When's the latest?
Just to give you an idea of the timing of our seasons, here --our first frost free date is usually around the May long weekend--and all outdoor construction usually ceases by the third week of October. (Leaves start turning in early September, usually they're all off the trees well before Halloween)
If there's no way for you to let me know (given that I am uneasy about giving out a more precise location)--what's the best way for me to find out?
