I've started late with bulbs this year. This is my first time gardening alone since I've moved away from home and I have some canas and some dahlias. last night I put them into peat with some soil mixed in and am starting them inside. They're up in my guest room which I leave the door closed and it gets sun all afternoon and is nice and warm up there. I figure this way I can transplant them once it's warm enough outside and I won't have to wait as long for the plant to grow.
