It's time to plant spring-blooming bulbs! Tulips, daffodils, crocus and others need to be planted in fall so they can root during the winter and burst forth with color in early spring. For the longest lasting bulbs, choose bulbs that are marked "naturalizing." Bulbs need extra phosphorus to produce vibrant, colorful flowers. In each hole, add a little bulb food (like HappyFrog Bulb Food) or Bone Meal. Use bulbs for mass plantings in areas that will be shady later in the spring. An old method for a natural looking bulb display is to take a handful of bulbs, and toss them gently in the air. Where they land is where each bulb should be planted.
