Autumn bulbs bring spring color

Autumn bulbs bring spring color

If you’re looking for a great pop of color in your garden next spring, take a few minutes to plant some bulbs this fall. Bulbs should be planted when the weather turns cool and nights reach 40 to 50 degrees. Loosen the soil and add peat moss or other organic matter if it’s not an established planting bed. Plant the bulbs in clusters with the pointy side up (ask your local garden center if you can’t tell which way is up). Be sure to keep the labels handy until you plant, as it’s hard to tell bulbs apart from each other.

In addition to traditional iris, lily and tulip, here are a few
of our favorite Minnesota-hardy bulbs:
