Della, our Greenhouse Manager has written a helpful article on Wintering Begonias, Cannas, Dahlias and Geraniums. It can be found on the Greenhouse Tab on the left.

Spring flowering bulbs have arrived and can be planted as soon as space is available. Best selection is during September and we finish our bulb season by mid November. Bulbs can be stored after purchase, but must be in the ground before winter arrives.
