When planting Perennials or a new Pre-Planned Garden in Fall, gardeners have a perfect opportunity to also plant Spring-Blooming Bulbs! Transplant your perennials first, to give them plenty of time to establish before winter.
Then, after the first hard frost of fall, bring out your fall-planted (spring-blooming) bulbs and put them into the soil.
When planting with most of our Pre-Planned Gardens, one bulb collection is sufficient. For larger gardens, like the Jumbo Waterwise Pre-Planned Garden, two bulb collections will better fill out the space.
When planting these bulbs into an established pre-planned garden, wait until after hard frost to begin. Cut back the perennials to give yourself room to work and a clearer view the ground. Then follow the steps listed above.
