If your garden in spring has the welcome sight of loud and colourful tulips brightening the place up, then it can feel like an exciting place to be again after the inevitable dull, wet moments of winter. For me, the main feeling is relief. Relief that I actually remembered to plant some. Bulb planting in autumn is one of those jobs that we can have in our minds to do, then before you know it it’s a last minute scramble to find the last bag in the shop, hidden away in a corner to make way for inflatable snowmen and reindeer stuffed to the gunnels with LEDs.
Even when I’m organised, each spring I always wish I’d grown more. Perhaps there is no other group of plants that look as good in repetition as spring bulbs. They are the garden’s very own Pringles. Once you get a taste for them, you can never seem to have enough…

So it is with bulbs. It pays to make sure that any soft bulbs that have a bit of ‘give’ in them, don’t end up in your garden. Choose the biggest, firmest bulbs and they will do so much of the hard work for you.

Mid and late fall is not an ideal time for propagation unless you are in a frost-free region with a warm, arid, or tropical climate (USDA Zones 9 to 11); for such a climate, this is an ideal time to grow succulents and houseplants cuttings.
Mums are synonymous with fall. Thanks to their late bloom period, these beautiful flowers make a much-welcomed addition to the home landscape.
