The houseplant that we know as African violet is not a true violet at all. It is, botanically speaking, Saintpaulia ionantha.
Ninety percent of the bulbs in home flower gardens belong to just 6 genera: Narcissus, Tulipa, Hyacinthus, Iris, Lilium and Gladiola.
Gardeners need to be aware of the frost dates in their region. This means the date of the last frost in the springtime and the first frost in autumn.
Freezing temperatures at the end of winter may injure plants that have started growing for Spring.
