Many are enjoying cheerful Crocus, Daffodils and more showing their colors in the garden right now. And when you see something next door that catches your eye, it’s normal to want to add it to your garden right away. But many spring-blooming bulbs need a wintering-over period in order to grow and bloom. They must be planted in the fall.
With two seasons for perennial planting, it can get a little confusing when it comes to bulbs. Certain bulbs, including Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Hyacinths, Crocus and several others, require three to four months of temperatures near freezing in order to bloom. But why? These bulbs are native to colder regions and require this cold period in their life cycle in order to grow and bloom in the spring.
For the same reason we can’t plant Daffodils in the spring in Vermont, gardeners in warmer areas (like Florida) can’t grow these bulbs in their gardens in any season unless they “force” the bulbs in the refrigerator for three to four months. Learn how to do this in our blog.
Bulbs are harvested from our growers in Holland in August and September, sent directly to us and then out to our customers to add to their gardens right away. The best time to plant spring-blooming bulbs is the early fall, before the ground freezes in your area. Depending on your zone, planting time could range from September all the way into November.
If you find yourself in a garden center and see Tulips or Daffodils for sale in the spring, don’t buy them! They are leftovers from the fall season and won’t grow in your garden. The healthiest bulbs are harvested fresh for the season and planted right away.
