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!

    Comments about High Country Gardens Snow Crocus Mix:

    The yellow snow crocus were the very FIRST flowers to bloom in our SW high desert yard this year! :)
    Third week in February and I walked outside this morning to check on all of the HCG bulbs that I had planted last fall (no amendments, but I did mulch with tree leaves).
    And I saw these tiny, yellow, very alpine looking crocus buds! I checked on them about an hour later and they had already opened quite a bit more.
    I know that the other colors in the mix are right behind, as there are lots of grass-looking little shoots everywhere.
    These are just great for planting in a lawn, because they spring up before the grass is out of winter dormancy. So they wouldn't be mowed or overshadowed.
    To be honest, I had ordered so many bulbs last fall (planted October and November), and I put these in last. I was exhausted by then and simply carelessly scooped out some earth with my shovel and dumped these in the resulting dip. I didn't take any care to properly space or even arrange these upright. I dumped the shovel full of dirt back on top, plopped on a heavy layer of leaves, and maybe watered a few times that fall. In other words, they performed perfectly even with less than ideal treatment!
    I am extremely pleased, they are even more cute and endearing than I had thought from the photos.
    I'm especially happy that they should spread and naturalize, I look forward to continuing to enjoy these each early spring.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Snow Crocus Mix:

    HCG bulbs are very healthy. Great instructions on planting them. The blossoms were exquisite. They came up through the light snow cover at Easter, end of March in Montana at 5000'.

    The deer did eat the blossoms, not the leaves. I am looking forward to more of a show next year.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    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).
