Bulb Gardening: Planning your Fall Planting

Planning a bulb garden is easy and rewarding. Whether you’re planting plants in spring or summer you can still prepare the area for your bulbs.

A great trick is to use empty nursery pots as placeholders for bulbs – place them where you want to plant bulbs in the Fall. It may sound silly but if you dig a hole, set the empty pot in it, fill it up with soil and cover the top just so you can’t see the edge, you will have the work and spacing done in advance. Then this Fall, just pop the pot out with a shovel and you’ll have a hole ready for your bulbs. Just add bulb food and the soil from your container and you’re done!

Bulbs are a gardener’s best friend because they’re low maintenance, many multiply without the help of the gardener (but to help the process we recommend G&B Bud & Bloom Fertilizer), and they are beautiful!
