There was a stretch of very cold weather that hit Central Illinois recently. While Christian County Master Gardener Gwen Podeschi is happy it’s gone, she says all the snow might’ve been a good thing.
Despite the interesting weather over the last few weeks, Podeschi says the bulbs are right on track this year.
In Central Illinois, there is always the chance for a few days of cold, even after it seems like things are warming up. Podeschi warns that even if those do happen, Spring bulbs can handle it, and they will be just fine.
The reason the Spring bulbs can handle the cold comes down to evolution.
Podeschi appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
