Learn about bloom times, sun and soil requirements, planting tips, and the best time to buy and plant spring-blooming bulbs.
KNOW YOUR GROWING ZONE
Most spring-blooming bulbs are winter hardy in all but the very coldest parts of the country. If you live in a hot climate, some types of bulbs will need to go through an artificial chilling period (in a refrigerator) before they will bloom. For best results, always be sure to choose bulbs that are appropriate for your growing zone.
PART SUN locations get 4-6 hours of sunlight per day.
SHADE locations receive less than 4 hours of sunlight per day.
