It’s pretty much been a snow free season thus far in the Kansas City area, and though we know that has been somewhat enjoyable, it’s not all coming up daises. Due to this extraordinarily mild ( dry) winter, your landscape is becoming very thirsty. Right now, any new plantings, trees, and most especially your spring bulbs are really stressed.
Hermes Landscaping want to get the word out that properties that planted tulips or other bulbs last fall should be preparing owners and tenants that their spring color displays may fall short of expectations this year.
Bulbs need enough water to keep them moist and plump while they are lying dormant underground. If shrinking occurs, the bulbs won’t be able to retain their blooms, which could result in smaller blooms or no blooms in the spring. It’s also a good time to take precautions for any newly planted trees, shrubs, or turf. Have you landscaper come out to inspect and hand-water any dry areas.
