Planting seeds and bulbs provide the perfect opportunity to practice patience and delayed gratification. Pay attention to the soil and growing conditions, time it right, and you will be rewarded with your own grown-from-scratch plant and seasonal color!
Spring-Planted Bulbs include tender bulbs like dahlias that are planted in spring and flower in summer. Fall-Planted Bulbs include tulips and daffodils; they’re planted in fall and bloom in spring. Planting bulbs allow you to design a garden within a garden. Interplant among perennials or shrubs, ring around a tree, plant single species in large drifts, or tuck a few in your window box for a surprise in the spirng. Bulbs are a low maintenance way to have fun with color and design. Please see our Bulb Basics tip sheet.
Create a ‘bulb lasagna’ in a pot by layering bulbs with varying bloom times for long lasting show of color.
