Planting Fall Bulbs

There may be some nice, warm fall days ahead, however; there is no doubt that the gardening season will be wrapping up here in Wisconsin shortly. Don’t put the hose and the tools away just yet.  Planting bulbs in the fall in your yard or garden will provide early color come next spring. Bulbs that bloom in spring, tulips, daffodils, crocus and hyacinth need to be planted the previous fall as does Allium for a later spring bloom. Here in Wisconsin, you should plant these bulbs from mid September to late October, or at least three to four weeks before the ground freezes. Select the planting location so that the area isn’t mowed until after the foliage turns yellow (ripens). Ripening foliage feeds the underground bulb so it can store nutrients and energy necessary to bloom in spring. Plant bulbs in odd numbered groups of five or more. If planting in rows, stagger the bulbs to create a dense, full look. Some are best displayed in small clusters and others in large masses. Dig holes with a bulb planter or trowel. Be sure to follow the planting depths and spacing listed on the package because planting depths may vary. Your bulbs will benefit by mixing the soil with organic matter and bulb fertilizer before planting. Place the bulbs, pointed end up, in the bottom of the hole. Press firmly and cover with the amended soil. Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting. Planting fall bulbs is an easy way to bring your winter-weary garden to life in spring long before perennials start to push out of the ground and before it’s warm enough to plant annuals.
