It’s amazing how a bed of tulips, daffodils and other spring-blooming bulbs can transform an ordinary yard or garden into a showplace that’s the talk of the neighborhood. These cheery flowers have a big impact, and they’re in full bloom when winter-weary eyes need them most (and other landscape plants are still asleep).
Spring bulbs are tough and dependable. They aren’t fazed by cold weather, are not fussy about soil, and are happy to grow in sun or shade. Best of all, they require almost no care. Just plant them in the fall and look forward to an incredible burst of spring color.
Every yard has room for at least a few spring bulbs. For some suggestions about where to plant them as well as tips and tricks to ensure a great spring show, read our new article: Landscaping with Spring-Blooming Bulbs.
