Homeowner Tip: When To Start Planting Spring Flowers – Spring is right around the corner! If you are starting to think about what landscaping improvements you want to do or what flowers you want to plant, now’s the time. Here are a few tips to help you get started when planting Spring flowers.

Do Your Research

Whether you have a favorite flower you’d like to plant, or you just want something that looks nice, do your research to find out when the best time of year is to get them in the ground. This can be very important to the health and growth of the flowers in your garden.

Plant in Groups

Bulbs look beautiful when they’re planted in irregular groups. For a little added fun when planting, toss a handful on the ground and plant them where they fall. It will leave a pleasant surprise for you when they start popping out of the ground.

When Is It Too Late?

When the ground is hard and frozen, it’s too late to plant your bulbs; however, it’s better to give them a fighting chance in the ground because they likely won’t survive on their own. While there is a desired planting period, there are still possibilities of beautiful bulbs blooming after being planted under unlikely circumstances.

Prepare the Landing Bed

Wherever you decide to plant the bulbs in your ground, make sure it is properly prepared. Remove any rocks or weeds, and loosen the soil. After you’ve planted the bulb, cover with soil and lightly compress – don’t pack in – the dirt. Lastly, add water and wait patiently for the beautiful color to arrive to your yard!
