Payne’s Bulbs – We ONLY sell the Highest Quality Bulbs!
Time to plant bulbs now for a gorgeous display next Spring! Payne’s sells ONLY the biggest, highest quality Holland-grown bulbs to make sure you get the largest, longest-lasting, most brilliantly colored blooms.
Fall is the best time of year to plant bulbs of tulips, hyacinth, crocuses and daffodils in order to enjoy their fireworks of colorful blooms come Spring. Stop by either store and choose from our great selection!
Don’t forget to sprinkle a little bulb food or bone meal in the hole while you are planting the bulbs and also sprinkle a little more on the soil surface to assure healthy growth. Of course, we have both bulb food and bone meal!
The warm Fall is a great season for planting hardy trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and bulbs! Here are some great reasons why:
• Root growth is greatest in the fall. Plants prioritize: in spring and early summer flowers, fruits and leaves get the most energy; in mid-to-late summer, fruiting, blooming and ripening peak, leaf growth lessens and stems begin to get more energy.
• As fall approaches, plant tops go dormant and next year’s buds finish forming, resulting in a decrease in the energy required by the above-ground parts of your plants. This lets plants use that energy for a tremendous increase in root growth. In fact, in fall, as stem growth tapers off, 70-80% of the season’s new root growth occurs. This means that plants established in the fall have better root systems to support the following Spring’s rush of new top growth than spring plantings.
Last week the Garden Guru encouraged listeners to clean up their vegetable gardens by pulling the tired plants and grinding them up to make your own compost and fertilizer! This frees up the space to plant more crops, especially radishes, beets and carrots. It’s a great time to plant root vegetables! The soil is perfect because the sun heats the soil and it really allows the seeds to germinate perfectly! Listen to Lynn’s tip as he also gives advice on what else is perfect to plant in the Fall.
Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
