Fall Bulbs

Fall bulbs are planted in the fall / autumn and will grow in the spring. When trees are bare of leaves, and the sun can make its way to warm the ground in spring, flower bulbs in shady parts of the garden will grow before the leaves come out on the trees again.

You must take into account the amount of sun your area receives through the day, some bulbs do require full sun all day whereas others do not.

When planting bulbs, make sure you plant them to the depth according to the instructions on the packet and give them good quality soil.

One of the most exciting moments for a gardener in the spring is to see the first bulb plants bursting through the soil. It is well worth the work you put in the autumn to prepare your garden ready for spring.

So don't forget to plant your bulbs in the fall! For the best results, they need to be planted in the autumn to benefit from the natural cold spell during winter, and will then produce much better flowering plants during spring.
