Planting Spring-Flowering Bulbs

I never let autumn pass by without adding some more spring-flowering bulbs to my garden. I must admit that when it comes to spring flowers, I have a tendency to get a little carried away. I just love painting the landscape with swaths of bright colors, a real treat after the long and harsh months of winter. You must plant spring-flowering bulbs such as daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, and muscari in the fall before the ground freezes, so they can put out roots in the fall soil and then go through a dormant period in the winter. I like to plant bulbs in combinations for a more impactful and natural look. My Border Collection of bulbs includes some of my favorite spring flowers all packed together for easy planting.
