Why Plant Bulbs In Fall



 17-Fall-Bulbs-Now

Why should you plant garden bulbs in Fall?

This is a good question. This time of year when everything is starting to slow down when it comes to your garden, landscape and garden pottery.  You should be thinking about cleaning out all your home and garden planters, washing them up and storing them for the winter if they can't handle the freezing temps and cold.

But, now is also the time you should pot up your garden bulbs for next Spring.  Sounds strange doesn't it?  Well potted bulbs need time in cooler weather conditions for several months in order for them to bloom come Spring.  Basically it's the coldness of winter that encourages the bulbs to bloom.  You can plant them directly into the ground of course but we feel there is nothing more beautiful come Spring then large flowerpots bursting with color and fragrance.  

Garden containers are also the way to go if you live in an areas where animals can get to them for food.  The containers will keep them safe and comfy till they bloom in Spring.

Potted bulbs like well draining soil or they will rot.  Use our Pot Filler to fill the bottom of your planters.  It will let the excess water drain off, keeps the soil from draining out the hole and provides better air circulation.   A garden planter of bulbs also like 5 hours of sunlight during the growing season so make sure your planters are placed in a nice semi sunny spot.

Once the days get shorter and cooler you should be shopping the bulb catalogs for the ones you one to plant this next year. You want the soil in your planters to stay cool but not freeze. Leaves are changing color and dropping from trees.  It's a beautiful time of year when nature says FALL is coming.  This is the time to pot up your bulbs.
