When to plant black EE
I am old to gardening but new to tropicalesque gardening. This year I am putting in a tropical bed!!! And I am very excited about it. I have been learning a lot reading through this forum.
I have a question about planting EE plants.
I purchase a black EE online from Pacificcallas.com. They said it ships in March in a (3.5 inch pot) so it may be coming any day. And I plan on buying some EE bulbs from the grocery store.
I just don't know when it is safe to plant them?
I am putting them in a north facing bed that gets 2-4 hours of sun. We are in the high desert and get a couple weeks of temps over 100 every year.
I have amended the sandy soil already with a lot of compost, peat moss and manure. The bed is also heavily mulched with wood chips.
We have had temps in the 50's and 60's the last couple of weeks, but will likely get a few more snow storms before May 15th.
Any ideas of when I should plant them?
How deep do I put the bulbs?
Thank you for the help!
