bulbs/seeds to plant in Aug
I read these forums often and have learned a lot. So many of my questions have already been answered, this is the first time I've had occasion to post anything!
I'm planning an early August wedding, and since both he and I love to garden we want to share that with our friends. Problem is, our knowledge of gardening is limited to berries and veggies.
We are thinking of packaging either seeds or bulbs and giving them to the guests (most of whom live in central NC) to plant in their gardens. My initial thought was tulip bulbs, but I suppose August is too early to plant them since I can't find a place that will ship them to me before September!
We'd like to find a flower seed or bulb that they could plant in mid-Aug and have it bloom before frost. Or that they could plant in Aug, and then would bloom the following Spring. Any suggestions?
