Spring rewards you for making it through the gray winter with a gentle explosion of blooms. Bulbs are tough, weathering the cold and the wet if planted in well-drained soil. They are our heralds of hope and optimism for a new year!
Plant spring bloomers in the fall before the ground freezes and while bulbs are still firm
and dormant. If you purchase bulbs in the fall but can’t get them planted right away,
store them in a refrigerator or a place where the temperature stays around 40°F (4°C).
This will keep them dormant until you can plant.
