Warmer weather is on the way and that means one thing for hobby gardeners and landscapes alike—it’s time to plant! Whether you’re a first-time planter or experienced pro, brushing up on your spring bulbs planting skills is always a good idea. Here are our favorite tips for planting with spring bulbs in the garden.
Decorate Your Lawn
Spring bulbs are a fantastic way to add pops of color to your yard. For a fun and creative look, plant spring bulbs beneath your grass in the fall. Planting in a random pattern can create a wild look reminiscent of the forest or wide open fields. Planting in patterns or different shades can also create a fun look. Let the spring bulbs naturally die in the spring before you mow. In future years, the plants will grow back bigger and stronger for an even bolder effect.
Bring In Exotic Flowers
Have you always wanted to have more exotic flowers like dahlias or gladioli in your yard but not known where to put them? Plant these spring bulbs in the late-spring in areas with free-draining soil. Let the plants grow and then place them in areas of your yard that have lush foliage. Placing a stunning bright dahlia in the middle of greenery can make your backyard seem like a much more exciting and exotic place ot be.
Bring in the Season
Spring bulbs are a fantastic way to bring in the season. Whether you like bright yellows, sizzling hot pinks, stunning reds, or tranquil blues, spring bulbs can bring in the growing season with a bang. Depending on the plants and blooms you choose, you can enjoy your spring bulbs year round as the seasons change. If you plant now, the middle of spring will yield a yard full of gorgeous spring color.
