About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Though we still have some snow, everyone is starting to think garden. I am getting out the grow lites and will be starting some seeds for the season for donating to community gardens. Usually tomaotes and leafy greens. I also swap seeds with people from all over the US. Its probably a good time to start a few tomato and pepper plants here in about two more weeks. Cher
