Fall-Planted, Spring-Blooming Bulbs

06oct6:00 pm7:30 pmFall-Planted, Spring-Blooming BulbsAdult Lecture Series

Event Details

It may seem counterintuitive but you need to plant your spring-blooming bulbs in the fall for the spectacular display you want in spring. Join us as Education Director, Dr. Mark Miller, takes a deeper look at geophytes (bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes) that delight the eyes after a hard winter spell. Interesting characters that you may not be familiar with will be detailed, as well as the ones that are more resistant to deer and other marauding critters. Many of the bulbs covered in the lecture will be available for sale in the Forage & Finds gift shop.
