It’s almost time to plant those bulbs! You can plant your summer bulbs this fall and they will have plenty of time to establish, giving you a much stronger display and longer bloom time than if you planted them next spring. So, go ahead and order your lilies and iris now to have a great flower garden next summer.
Planting bulbs is one of the least expensive ways to fill your garden with a huge variety of colorful flowers in all shapes and sizes. Bulbs can brighten your garden from early spring until it’s time to plant for the next year. Most bulbs are planted in the fall to bloom the next spring. And most plants grown from bulbs are perennials that come back year after year. If you choose strong varieties and care for them properly, the flower bulbs you plant this fall may become the most important feature of your flower garden.
