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.
Your Garden in the Fall
