Beginning with Bulbs
Fall is the time to plant spring-blooming bulbs such as daffodils, tulips, crocus, hyacinth, and alliums. There is something magical about the first cheery yellow daffodils to brighten up a late winter’s day. Bulbs can be planted in garden beds or containers and are a delight in any garden. Explore the diversity and beauty of spring bulbs. Learn helpful tips for preparing gardens for planting.
