September and October are the best months to plant spring bulbs. If you do this now, you will be able to admire your wonderful garden and enjoy a colourful spring. Unfortunately, things are not so easy when it comes to plating techniques. If the gardener doesn’t have experience, it is possible to have no flowers when spring will come. The good news is that there are a lot of techniques anyone can learn.
First of all, if you want to make sure that your plant is healthy you should leave the foliage to die on its own. This way the flower will also have enough power to bloom again. The foliage is really important because due to it the plants bloom and recharge their energy. This is why some plants are expanding for years, while others do not last more than two years. There are plants which take their energy from bulbs or tubers and this helps them survive in early spring before the leaves are showing.
Another thing you should take into consideration is the colour of the bulb you are going to use. The best advice is to choose colours that are matching with the colour of your house. It depends also on what other flowers will grow in the garden. The choice is yours. Do you want something different, that will get people’s attention or are you enjoying more the traditional option? There are so many colours on the market that you will have a lot of options.
Do not forget to think about the height of the flower too. You could plant some bulbs and discover they will turn into small for the place you chose. If you check the height you will be able to know where to put that bulb so your garden will have the design you want. The size of the bulbs matter because most of the times it shows how big the plant will grow.
A good gardener will know where to plant his bulbs. It is important to plant them as soon as you can. If you have to wait for some days, store them in a cool place. Do not forget that bulbs want sunlight, so choose a place that gets at least five or six hours of sunlight every day. If you want to have a wonderful garden in spring, it is time to start planting bulbs.
