Get ready for Fall bulbs

When to Plant:

Fall Bulbs should be planted as soon as the ground is cool but before the ground freezes. Typically, this is when evening temperatures average between  40° – 50° F.

Where to Plant:

Bulbs like sun and well drained soil. Avoid shady spots or any area where water collects

Planting:

The planting depth depends on the type of bulb. As a general rule, plant big bulbs about 6″ deep and small bulbs about 5″ deep. Set the bulb in the hole with the roots down. back fill with soil over the hole, lightly compress the soil but do not pack it.

Water:

Water once to stimulate root growth. There is no need to water continuously unless you live in an area with low precipitation in the winter months.
