The Q&A Archives: Planting Summer Blooming Bulbs

Question: I have received some spring bulbs and do not know when they should be planted. They are White Gladiolus and Queen Fabiola. The snow is currently gone and there is little frost.

Answer: It is too early to plant summer blooming, tender bulbs in Maine. You need to wait until all danger of frost has passed. I'd wait until late May to plant in your region. It's been an unusual winter, weatherwise, but I wouldn't want to take anychance with a late frost or snowstorm.
