Choosing Spring Blooming Bulbs

Garden bulbs that bloom in the spring are usually planted in the fall. Summer may seem like an odd time to start thinking about spring bulbs, but it’s actually a great time to start planning for next spring.

By now you know where you had bare spots in the ground that you can fill with bulbs that will provide beautiful color when everything else looks drab in the garden. Plus, if you observe that something you planted this spring isn't doing well in the garden you can choose to remove it and place bulbs in its place.

By planing your spring garden now when fall does roll around you’ll be ready to dig some holes, plop some bulbs, and wait. Gardening with bulbs really is that easy Waiting is the hardest part of gardening with bulbs. They are less fussy than annuals and vegetables, and their blooms are an important forage source for bees in the spring.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite spring bulbs I recommend if you want to get into bulb gardening.
