Grower's Guide to Flower Bulbs for Fall Planting
When to Plant Bulbs in Fall
Fall flower bulbs are planted in the fall, usually before regular frosts set in. This gives the bulbs plenty of time to establish their roots. However, flower bulbs can be planted in late fall if the ground isn't frozen or snow covered.
Where to Plant Fall Flower Bulbs
Fall flower bulbs are very versatile. Many can be grown in bulb beds, perennial beds, under trees, in naturalized areas and in containers. Because many bulbs bloom before deciduous trees leaf out, some can be planted under trees. All fall bulbs need well-drained soil, and most need full sunlight or partial shade. Bulbs look most impressive when planted in clusters or groups.
How to Plant Bulbs in Fall
Bulbs should be planted at a depth that is about three times the height of the bulb with the pointy end up. At the time of planting, we recommend fertilizing with an all-natural plant food like Van Bourgondien's 100% Natural Bulb Food
. If the ground is dry, water the bulbs.
How to Care for Fall Bulbs
Bulbs for fall planting are very low maintenance. However, if you want blooms year after year, do not mow or trim the foliage after the flowers bloom. The foliage produces food for the bulb and next year's flowers. Let the foliage fade naturally. Many gardeners plant fall bulbs among perennials that will hide the fading foliage.
