    What is doing really well in your yard today?

    I got a box of 100 Gladiolus bulbs around end of Feb/early March & they are really providing some "wow" now:

    My most recently propagated baby Hydrangea is starting to bloom.

    Angel trumpets (Brugmansia) are going to start putting on a beautiful & scented show soon:

    Did you plant a few gladiolus at a time and then wait a few weeks before planting more?

    Thanks, Sjoerd!!

    Petronius, no I did not. That's a fantastic idea though!

    Purpleinopp, the spacing of the plant time of the gladiolus is something I learned years ago.

    I'm so glad you shared it! If ever I find myself with more new bulbs, I will do that. I don't plan to disturb the ones I've already planted.
