The Bulbs Are Back in Town


As Audrey Hepburn said, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”. And fall bulb planting is a true testament to this. Spend one autumn afternoon planting your tulip, crocus, and narcissus bulbs to yield months of colorful excitement awaiting you next spring. So grab your shovels because “the bulbs are back in town!”.

With a little basic knowledge, anyone can grow beautiful bulbs, but when is the best time to dig and drop these beauties? A good rule of thumb is to wait until “sweater weather” or when temperatures no longer exceed 65 degrees. This golden window of time usually falls around the end of October. As temperatures continue to drop, Daylight Savings is typically a good last reminder to plant your bulbs before the first frost.
