Tips to Plant Bulbs + Unique Varieties We're Offering

Spring may seem far off, but you can plan for a beautiful spring gardening bed by planting spring-blooming bulbs this fall. You want to plant when the soil temperature is approximately 50 degrees or below. Spring-blooming bulbs require the cool/ cold temperatures of fall and winter to develop underground to then bloom in spring.

Further tips:

  • Do you have squirrels or other critters that love to dig up your bulbs? When planting your bulbs, lay a large piece of chicken wire over that area before covering with dirt. The animals won't be able to dig thru it easily and your bulbs will bloom thru the holes of the chicken wire.

  • Most bulbs like to be planted in partial to full sun locations.

  • The planting depth of a bulb generally depends on the size of the bulb. A good rule of thumb is that the depth you plant should be 3x the diameter of the bulb. However, planting depths can vary by variety. For more specific planting depths, check the label on your bulb package or ask us at the garden center.
