Fall is the time to plant your spring hardy bulb flowers. They need the cold winter soil to hibernate in before they make their grand appearance in the spring. This week I am going to be posting about planting bulbs in the fall so follow along and learn a little bit if you are unfamiliar.
Start planning out your spring bulb garden now. The rule of thumb is to plant the bulbs after the first fall frost or when the soil temperature drops below 60 degrees. It is still a little bit early for us here in Jersey but should be perfect soon.
Think about where you want to plant your spring garden.
- the spot should get at least 6 hours of full sun
- it should be well drained and not prone to collecting a lot of water
-the soil should be well nourished. Mix in some of your organic compost or peat moss to enhance it.
