Truly goodnight, now
OK, so I planted a couple of dozen Estella Rijnveld tulips in my front garden today. I had to chip at the first 2" of soil to get down below the frost.
It's raining out right now, and we're supposed to get more rain over the next few days, so I hope this gives them a chance to establish.
I noticed that some of my daffodils have sprouted already: most are still below soil level (I inadvertently dug a few up) but some of them have tiny nubs of green breaking the surface of the soil. Good thing they're frost-hardy.
