Listen Up To "Bulbs & Corms" on In The Garden Radio

Bulbs & Corms
It's the end of September and officially Fall now. Let's start thinking about what to plant for spring color. Today on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, KUCI Staff Host and UC Master Gardener Sally Richards talks with Horticulturist Steve Hampson from Roger's Gardens.

Sally and Steve will discuss the differences between two primary forms of underground food storage systems. That boring, technical description is exactly what Bulbs (e.g., Amaryllis, Daffodil) and Corms (e.g., Gladiolus, Freesia, Crocus) are and why they produce such glorious color every year.

Steve Hampson is an expert on his favorite bulb, the Daffodil! Learn the best ones to plant in the fall and how to care for them. Did you know you can grow one of the most expensive spices in the world in your bulb garden? That's right! Saffron comes from the Crocus sativus corm!
