When should I plant bulbs?
Spring-flowering Bulbs (Daffodils, Hyacinth, Tulips, Crocus etc.) can be planted in the garden around the Berkshires from late September and while soil can still be worked – generally until mid-November.
Colchicum, the fall-blooming Crocus, are available to plant in September as well. More on Bulbs.
Summer-flowering Bulbs (Gladiolus, Dahlia) are available in April for starting indoors or planting in mid-May. We do not offer Begonia as they have a troublesome shelf-life.
Winter-flowering Bulbs (Paperwhite Narcissus and Amaryllis) are available in November and can be started immediately indoors. They will take about 4 to 6 weeks to bloom after potting.
