Hello Great Gardeners,

I am making up for a little lost time during the summer, instead of waiting another week to get this issue out. I thought I would send it out this week.

The reason for this is now is the best time to get into the garden center for the best selection of fall bulbs. Many people think that bulbs such as Daffodils, Hyacinth, Allium, Crocus, and Tulips are planted in the spring, but they are planted now in the fall and come up in the spring.

The company we get our bulbs from has given us all kinds of information to pass onto you about growing bulbs, so don't forget to check out the link and video. I also included some fun facts about some of my favorite fall bulbs.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, hit reply. I would love to hear from you. Have a great-gardening day.

Daffodils are a lovely addition to the spring garden. These easy-to-care-for flowers add bright spots of sunshine that will return year after year.
  • Daffodils all fall under the botanical name, Narcissus.
  • Often confused with the use of narcissus and daffodil is the term jonquil, which is a specific type of daffodil with dark green leaves and clusters of several small and fragrant flowers – different from the daffodil's one flower and flat leaves.
  • In England, the daffodil is called the "Lent lily."
  • Daffodil is flower of March and symbol of 10th wedding anniversary.
  • The most common narcissus species growing in North America were brought from Europe by the early colonists.
  • Bunch of daffodils offered as a gift ensures happiness and represents good fortune, while offering a single daffodil predicts misfortune.
  • Daffodils were symbol of chivalry during Victorian times. They are symbol of hope today.
  • The daffodil is the national flower of Wales.
These pretty perennials are a favorite with gardeners and are valued for their bright colors and intoxicating scent.
  • The majority of hyacinth bulbs are grown commercially in the Netherlands.
  • An ancient Greek legend describes the origin of the Hyacinth. Two of the gods, Apollo and Zephyr, adored a handsome young Greek called Hyakinthos. Apollo was teaching Hyakinthos the art of throwing a discus. Zephyr, who was the god of the west wind, was overwhelmed with jealousy and he blew the discus back. It struck Hyakinthos on the head and killed him. From his blood grew a flower, which the sun god Apollo named after him.
  • Symbolizing sport or play in the language of flowers, hyacinth represent constancy, while blue hyacinth expresses sincerity.
Tulips are one of the most quintessential spring flowers. Their sparkling colors and opening flower buds are enough to anyone smile. 
  • The period between 1634 to 1637 is known as "Tulip Mania". Tulips became the most expensive flower in the world, so expensive that they were treated as a form of currency.
  • The tulip is the national flower or Turkey and Afghanistan.
  • The Netherlands is the world's main producer of commercially sold tulips, producing as many as 3 billion bulbs annually, mostly for export.
  • Tulips have a wide variety of meanings, with each color symbolizing something different.
    • Red - True Love
    • Yellow - Hope and Cheerful Thoughts
    • White - Apology
    • Purple - Someone is your everything
  • There are more than 3,000 different varieties of tulip.
