Love to see crocus welcoming us to Spring. Did you know that crocus also bloom in the Fall? It always surprises me to see crocus blooming in my garden in September. (You plant Fall crocus bulbs 'in September' and they bloom the following September. They also multiply too.)
olchicums look like fall-blooming crocuses on steroids: The big cup-shaped blooms appear seemingly out of nowhere in fall and create a bright show of pink or white. Name: Colchicum autumnale
Broccoli Days to Harvest: 49 to 66 When to Plant: For spring/summer broccoli harvests, start seeds indoors 6 to 9 weeks before last frost and place in the garden 1 to 3 weeks prior to last frost. For fall/winter harvest, sow seeds directly in the garden 10 to 12 weeks before first frost. Light: Full sun Soil: Well-drained soil amended with compost.
