Richard Hentschel discusses the care of spring-flowering bulbs after bloom and care of other spring-blooming perennials. Bulbs need to have all their leaves as long as possible. Deadheading other perennials puts more food into the roots and prepares the plant for more blooms next spring.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
