I went to one of those discount stores and bought Iris bulbs and Tiger lilies. They are already sprouting, yet the garden is under a foot of snow. What should I do?

You could always

plant in containers according the direction included with the bulbs and transfer to the garden at a later time. Use potting soil that drains well and water once a week. They should be fine once planted.

Thanks, I'll do that, and I'll try to keep them cool so they don't think it's June already.

windy container garden

Hello All- I live in NYC, in a high rise apartment with a balcony that has moderate sun which is VERY windy. I get ALOT of wind. Does anyone have any advice as to what plants would be good to plant? I would like some climbing, fast growing plants. Do you think cucumbers or squash would be good? What about beans? Thank you

Planting guide,

There is a planting guide on this site, click on the garden tab in the column of tabs to the left, then when the new page loads, look for the column titled "starting your garden" near the top center of the page, click on the link titled "planting dates for seeds", then you should be at the page for planting dates for your area, but you may need to sign in?
