available at Goffle Brook Farms

Muscari | Anemone | Allium | Paperwhites

Daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and tulips are welcome sights for the winter-weary. If you’ve ever looked at a swath of colorful spring bulbs with envy, plant a bed of your own. Fill your garden with beautiful bulbs that bloom in spring, summer, and fall. Whether you’re planting tulips, daffodils, crocus, or hyacinth, bulbs are a one-way ticket to a colorful garden.

Plant spring-blooming bulbs too early and they won’t bloom; plant too late and they won’t take root and establish. Ideally, bulbs should be planted at least six weeks before the ground freezes, when temperatures are cool. Plant a bulb pointy side up, roots down, but whatever side is up, it will most likely find its way through the soil in spring. After planting, tamp down the soil lightly, water well and cover with a couple of inches of mulch.

Three Bulb Planting Tips to consider are:
1. Cluster for color. If you don’t have a lot of space, group one or two varieties together to create maximum impact. Concentrating color in small spaces delivers the most bang for your buck. Think bright, contrasting color if you’re the adventurous type. Muted pastels offer something more elegant.
2. Succession splendor. Select a few varieties with different bloom times. Intermingling early-, mid- and late-season bloomers sets the stage for an entire season of showstopping color.
3. Create layers. Adopt the double-decker technique and plant small, earlier flowering types such as crocus or scilla on top of larger mid- to late-spring blooming bulbs—tulips, daffodils and alliums.
