I know you might not be thinking of the Summer when Spring is approaching but did you know that there are some bulbs you can plant in the Spring that will sprout up for the Summer! Bulbs can be classified as spring flowering bulbs or summer flowering bulbs.

Most tender bulbs are called summer bulbs, but there are several varieties that bloom in the fall. Tender bulbs are cold-sensitive and may not be able to survive the winter in areas of the U.S. other than the Southern coastal regions, the Southwest or coastal areas of California. Unless you live in these climates, you will need to plant tender bulbs in the spring after the ground has warmed up and dig them up in late fall for winter storage. Some tender bulb varieties are elephant's ear, caladium, gladiolus, canna and dahlia.

I tried growing them in a large container, I did not listen to my mom. She warned me that they needed to be planted in the ground.

They were growing nicely last summer until we moved...that is.
