Warm summer weather finally has arrived which means it’s time to mulch our gardens.
Summer mulch, which can range from well-rotted compost to a wide variety of other plant materials, is said to be the gardener’s best friend. We agree.
If you are in hurry to see fabulous tulips in bloom, there are several sites in Iowa and Michigan that host tulip festivals. These events draw thousands who come not only to see the flowers, but to enjoy Dutch heritage, including cuisine, crafts and parades. Several years ago, the Prairie Gardener took a bus tour to western Michigan to take in the Tulip Time Festival in Holland, Mich., near Grand Rapids.
