Maria. It depends on your zone and if they need to be dug up in the fall or they can stay over winter. Like here in Zone 5 I believe the only one that would survive the winter and needs the winter is the peony. Not sure about the other bulbs you mentioned since I don't have them in my yard.

I am a complete newbie when it comes to planting bulbs.  I have a bunch of dahlia,glads,freesia, and peony bulbs ready for my first bulb garden.  Currently I have them stored in the frig.  All of these bulbs are marked "spring planting".  Can I plant them in late fall or should I plant them in early spring?  Thanks to all!

Does anyone have any crocus they'd like to share??? I'm especially interested in a dark purple one. But would be grateful for anything.

Robin, I always pick the flowers of my leeks and various garlics. They look fabulous in a thin tall vase!

Hi Stan, personally I don't mind talk about Iris but I guess that is up to GS. Though there is a group just for Iris :)

Today I picked up a small pot of Purple Tulips, I will enjoy them inside then plant them outside later on. Tulips,Hyacinths & Daffs is all that lowes has right now. Didn't check out the other 2 home improvement stores yet.

I don't have many Allium, though I think they are so cool.

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on March 3, 2012 at 8:53pm

I don't know the name of it, but this is the one that dries nicely. allium

Comment by Lori S Ullman Trent on March 3, 2012 at 7:58pm

Yes, what kind do you dry?

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on March 3, 2012 at 7:47pm

Great photo's Lori, I see you also like to use the dried Allium for indoor decor.
