HYDRANGEA

Hydrangeas feature huge flowers on compact plants, ideal for containers and small gardens. Hydrangeas thrive in a moist, fertile, well-drained soil in partial to full shade. If you’re seeking blue flowers, check your soil’s pH level and apply aluminum sulfate in spring to lower pH to the 5.2-5.5 range.

 

DAFFODIL

The flowers are usually borne singly on each stem and may be yellow or white with a cup of the same or a contrasting color. These easy-care spring flowers are resistant to deer and rabbits, and grow best in dry summer conditions. Daffodil will do well with about 1 inch of water per week and provide them rich, well-drained soil.

 

 

HYACINTH

Hyacinths thrive in any well-drained soil in full to partial sun. Many varieties — usually the ones with the most robust flowers — will force easily indoors in soil or damp pebbles if planted and chilled until sprouts appear.

 

 

TULIP

Tulips are very easy to care for.  Pruning – Cut the flower stem to the base where you can see it when the flower fades and the petals start to fall.   Do not water tulips during the hot summer months. They are genetically used to hot, dry summers and cool wet springs.
