Planting Guides

Tips on Growing Fall Planted Flower Bulbs

When you receive your spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils, etc.) keep them in a dry, dark, cool place until ready to plant. They need air circulation so they will not collect moisture and rot. Planting times can vary from early October in the North to mid-to-late November in the southern regions. A good rule of thumb is to plant them about 6 weeks before the ground is frozen or after the first hard freeze. For more information and a planting depth illustration, see pages 14-16 of our Planting Guide.

Soil Preparation for Bulbs

A compost enriched, well-drained soil is best. Incorporate a good quality organic compost as needed. Yum Yum Mix® is recommended as an excellent source of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium needed for strong plants and healthy roots. Mix a small amount into the bottom of the hole before planting your bulbs.

Many bulbs prefer full sun exposure. However, Muscaria, Allium, Galanthus, Hyacinthoides, Scilla and many Daffodils will tolerate partial shade and bloom well. Pink daffodils will hold their color longer if planted in dappled shade or morning sun/afternoon shade.

After planting, add a top dressing of compost or other organic material and water in thoroughly. If your winter is dry, water every three to four weeks throughout the winter and add more mulch if necessary.

Protect your Bulbs

Apply Chase Mole and Gopher Repellent to the surface of the ground to protect bulbs from these burrowing mammals. As bulbs sprout, use our Deer Off Repellent to prevent deer and rabbits from browsing your spring blooms.

After your Bulbs have Bloomed

Once your bulbs have bloomed, allow the bulb foliage to brown and fade naturally, since the leaves are feeding the bulb in the ground. Removal of foliage weakens the bulb and leads to fewer blooms the following year. Planting your bulbs amongst your perennials is one way to conceal the dying bulb foliage. The perennials begin to grow and fill out as the bulb foliage dies back. The perennials will then provide foliage and color in the garden from late spring through the summer and into fall. Regular fertilization with balanced organic or natural fertilizer and a re-application of mulch each fall will insure more and more beautiful spring bulb blooms for many years!

    These daffodils are smaller than the more popular ones, but their numerous flowers and long color make up for. The whole neighborhood enjoyed them.

        Holy cow these girls are hardy! This is the 2nd year they are blooming for me, with more blooms than last year. They have been snowed on twice now - heavy, wet snows - and they are still standing! I thought after the 18" they were done for sure, but they survived, and even continue adding more blooms! Pretty yellow highlights along the front of my house, in afternoon sun. And even when the elk herd came through, they weren't eaten (can't say that much for my tulips, unfortunately). Love these!

          These bright, perky Daffs are a delight to see. Some came up strong and tall while others - not so much. Same front garden, same conditions. After they finish flowering I may dig the sad ones up and replant deeper. Not an easy chore as my property is very rock and root heavy. Which could be the problem.

            The bulbs were packaged well, came with clear instructions, and have grown beautifully! Our backyard squirrels also left these bulbs alone! These are currently in bloom and look wonderful!

            Q & A

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
