Bulbs: to dig or not
Bulbs always present the question after a season: "Should I dig them up to protect them from the possible freeze?"
Here is a list of great bulbs that can be left in the ground in Zones 8 or above:
- Elephant Ear
- African Iris
- Gloriosa Lily
- Spider lily
- Aztec lily
- Calla Lily
- Rain lily
All bulbs need some nourishment. Once they peek through for the new season, fertilize with a slow release, milagranite, or for a real immediate boost, a water-soluble fertilizer would be great.
Mulch well for the season. And, enjoy.
