Hello Diana,
Every fall I do a series of articles preaching the virtues of fall
planting. I am a true believer and do very little spring planting. I
will not get on my soap box here, but please give it a try. You will
find yourself losing far fewer plants in the garden when planting in the
fall. This is especially true of bulbs, tubers and corms that are
dormant. They never know they have been moved- just wake up all settled
in to their new home. Incidentally, just because you see nothing above
ground does not mean there is no activity going on beneath the surface.
