2 HLF - Publication, Tuesday, March 24, 2009 HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Change a bulb Next month is a great time to plant some spring bulbs so now is the time to select what you want to plant. Buy them now and plant them on the Easter weekend. My favourite bulbs for our climate are jonquils, bluebells, freesias and snowflakes. These can all be left in the ground (as long as drainage is reasonable) to do their own thing, and they'll come up reliably, year after year. Sprinkle some Dynamic Lifter pellets around them occasionally and, after flowering's over, plump them up for next year by watering the leaves fortnightly with a liquid fertiliser. The traditional cold-loving bulbs like daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are a bit more challenging in our relatively benign climate. You can usually get good results in the first year but, after that, their performance will be erratic. Buy these bulbs now but don't plant until at least the end of April. You can even wait until May. In the meantime, keep the bulbs in the crisper section of the fridge. There's been some debate in recent years about the effectiveness of refrigerating bulbs but, as long as you don't freeze them, the refrigerator is as good as place to store them as any. The main bulb problems to watch out for are wet soil, and snails and slugs.
