Would you like to see Flowers next spring in your yard?

Fall is the time to plant crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, and other spring-flowering bulbs throughout most of the country.

• While you should plant most bulbs by late October, you can plant tulips as late as November

• How to plant: Plant large bulbs, such as daffodils and tulips, about 8 inches deep and smaller bulbs, such as crocus, about 5 inches deep. If you're combining them with other bulbs, figure on two to three daffodil and tulip bulbs (full-size varieties) per square foot. For smaller bulbs, plant three to five per square foot—twice as many for a solid bed of color. Plant all bulbs with the pointed end up. To get bulbs of the same type to bloom at once, plant them at the same depth.
