First bulb purchase for Fall
The local RKO farm store had bags of 12ea. scilla siberica bulbs on sale for $1.99; I bought 21 bags, all that was in the bin. That comes to 252 bulbs (give or take because there are always some bad bulbs in those bags). I decided I might as well buy now at that price. They will be planted with established chiodoxia (sp?), altho I know the foliage and height won't be quite the same, the blue will be just as pretty.
Next month I'll be looking for sales on end of season daffs. In my area, the big box stores put them out early and just as quickly put them on the clearance racks.
