Fall is time to plant spring flowering bulbs

One of the most care free gardening rewards is planting spring flowering bulbs.

Once planted these plants can give a gardener years of beautiful blooms.

October and November are the months we should plants these bulbs. Garden centers will start stocking bulbs soon or they can be ordered from seed companies.  Make sure you select healthy, mature, disease free bulbs. Generally the larger the bulb the larger the bloom.  Most spring flowering bulbs prefer a sunny, or partial shaded location in a well-drained soil.
