Spring Flowering Bulbs
For beautiful flowers in spring, plan ahead and plant some bulbs after the first autumn frost. Flowering bulbs like daffodils, hyacinths, and crocus are among the earliest flowers every year, and some even start to bloom as early as January. Bulbs can be planted in flower beds, in lawns, under and around trees, or grown in containers - many will come back and even multiply for years of beauty with minimal care.
