Planning for spring: What color is your daffodil?

The Wichita Daffodil Society is having its bulb sale next weekend, where you can find all kinds of colors, forms and sizes of the spring-flowering bulbs. The reason the club has the sale – whose bulbs come from members’ gardens – is to help the club put on shows, which in turns shows the public just what a variety of daffodils there are.

Wichita gardener’s almanac for Oct. 10

Get your grass planted – Mid-October generally is the deadline for planting fescue seed in the fall. You can try it later, but be even more assiduous about keeping the grass watered, Ward Upham of K-State says. Freezing and thawing of soil later in the season can heave poorly rooted grass plants out of the ground, and they then dry up and die. Fescue also can be sodded later into the season.

In My Garden: playhouse and pond

We moved our playhouse eight blocks from our previous home where we had built it 33 years ago. It's one of the first things our grandchildren do when they come to visit, using it for everything from a house to an office to a concession stand. The pond was added when we hosted our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner in 2003. We enjoy the relaxing feel of our small yard.
