It’s Time To Plant Spring Flowering Bulbs! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Do you love to see those yellow Daffodils that come up early and bring in the Spring season. I still have some daffodils, crocus and grape hyacinths that my grandma planted in the gardens and it really feels good to see them blooming every Spring! I was asked a question last Friday on the 180′ (radio show) about when and how to plant Spring Flowering Bulbs. It was toward the end of the show and we didn’t have a lot of time to go into any detail, so here is a little info…

For Best Results – Plant Spring Flowering Bulbs in the Fall. 

These daffodils were planted by my grandma and always bring happy thoughts to me. Plant them in the Fall for Spring beauty, year after year… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The most popular Spring flowering bulbs are daffodils, tulips, crocus and hyacinths. They are the easiest to grow and find, and the least expensive to buy. You can find them at many Local Nurseries and Garden Centers this time of year (Fall). Here are a few more to check out :

  • alliums
  • anemones
  • aconites
  • dog-tooth violets
  • fritillaries
  • grape hyacinths
  • reticulated iris
  • glory-of-the-snow
  • snowdrops
  • snowflakes
  • star of Bethlehem.

The best time to plant your bulbs is right about now ( In the Fall between Thanksgiving and Christmas), at least it is here in West Tennessee. The bulbs need a lot of cold temp. time to really bloom well, so get them in asap…

Time to plant bulbs! I like to amend the soil with compost & blood and bone meal when I plant bulbs. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

First things first… Like I always say, Come up with a Design Idea! Where are you going to plant these bulbs? How many will you need? Are you going to over plant your new bed with annuals like pansy’s or violas? Get out the tape measure & a pencil and paper and come up with some basic dimensions and a basic design…Once you have a general idea that you like, get your supplies together and get started!

We have soil amendments like compost, manure, bone meal, blood meal, bulk mulch and more in stock for your projects at Carters nursery, Pond & Patio in Jackson, TN 38305!

Make sure too …

#1 – Get good quality, firm, heavy bulbs. NO soft, moldy or stunted ones! The bigger the better.

#2 – Get soil amendments to prepare your holes or beds. Organic is the way to go in my opinion! Blood Meal, Bone meal, Compost and chicken manure have always worked well for me. Work the soil well and as deeply as possible; rich soil and good drainage are key. If its heavy clay, work in some sand to improve drainage.

#3 – Plant you bulbs! Most bulbs get planted 2 to 3 times their diameter in depth except for the smaller ones (less that 1 1/2″), plant them 3 to 4 times their dia. deep. REMEMBER – The point goes up! You can use a bulb planter or garden trowel to install them one at a time or you can excavate an area to the proper depth and do a mass planting of your bulbs and back fill with the soil once they are all put into place. I love the effect that a big mass planting of spring color can make! Even a dozen bulbs around the mailbox can make Spring seem more abundant.

After you get them installed remember to mulch! The mulch will help hold moisture, detour weeds, stabilize the ground temperature and it looks great.

I hope this helps and I hope you plant a bunch of beautiful Spring Flowering Bulbs!
