Bulbs are on my mind these days. I’m awaiting the arrival of an order of spring-blooming bulbs, hoping the weather and my energy will be in synch when they do arrive. Everyone has their least-favourite garden task; planting bulbs in the fall is one of mine.
Several of the native trees and shrubs in our backyard came from plant sales held at the University of Guelph Arboretum in Ontario. The trees we purchased at the arboretum were no more than a couple of feet tall when they went in, but established quickly.
