Fall bulbs: When and How to plant?

Hi there,

As you may have noticed, it is time to buy your Fall bulbs!

Plant bulbs preferably at the end of September or October. You can plant them in December, but there is a chance that the frost will make the ground very inaccessible and the risk that your flower bulbs will not grow by the frost. When planting bulbs in pots make sure the pot won't freeze to much, otherwise your bulbs won't survive. You can offer them a hand to survive the frost by mixing dead leaves with soil, so this will create a natural isolation. Putting your pots along the wall of your home is also a solution.
