How to Plan for Spring Bulbs
Ask This Old House landscape contractor Roger Cook and landscape designer Jenn Nawada share some tips for planting spring bulbs
- Planning for spring bulbs should start in the fall. If you miss the fall, it’s best to wait until the following year to plant bulbs.
- Consider the look you want for the bulbs. For a structured, varied look, read the labels carefully and organize the bulbs by bloom time, height, and color. This ensures a variety of color and flowers all throughout the spring.
- For a more natural, wild look, try throwing the bulbs in the area you want to plant them. Wherever they land, plant them there.
- For a stronger impact, try planting multiple bulbs in the same hole.
