Planting Spring Bulbs



With the arrival of November, it’s time to think about any spring bulbs you plan on planting, which is best done between September and late November.

Choose bulbs that have no obvious defects or blemishes and take into consideration how far apart each bulb needs to be spaced. Most bulbs do well in sunny, well-drained soil and can be planted clumped together, in rows or at random – I personally like to plant bulbs in random places throughout the garden so when spring finally arrives, it’s like a little surprise where the bulbs pop up.

Some bulbs may shoot up early in late winter; cold weather shouldn’t affect the bulbs overall and they will bloom normally in the spring. Daffodils and some other bulbs spread on their own and will require little to no care after only a few years.
