Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

Sleeping Bulbs Need No Watering

SAMSUNGIrrigation systems and spring-blooming bulbs (tulips, narcissus, crocus, etc.) don’t mix. During the summer, when the bulbs are dormant, they do not need much water and can rot if they get too much. You’ll find you’ll grow the most beautiful tulips, especially. in flowerbeds you never water at all!
