Topic: Fall Bulbs for Spring Color

If you want to herald spring with a burst of color, you need to plan ahead because these bulbs need to be planted in the fall. Learn what bulbs are available now for that sure sign that spring has arrived. They show up as surprises when unexpected and take care of themselves in many instances. Many will bloom year after year with minimal attention.
