Around here, the general rule of “green” thumb is that Thanksgiving weekend is your latest you want to get those bulbs in the ground.
So if you want that early burst of color this spring from Tulips and Daffodils this may be your last chance! You will be busy next weekend shopping with Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, so make time THIS weekend!
While Tulips and Daffodils are the most common, there are so many types of fall-planting bulbs; such as Lily, Hyacinth, Allium, Iris, Crocus, just to name a few.
Winter is very long here in the Northeast and early spring bulbs give you that extra boost of hope and joy that spring really is coming. You also get a jump on the growing season!
