Spring Blooming Bulbs from Colorblends

Fall gardening chores continue at my Bedford, New York farm.

My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew have been hard at work preparing the greenhouses for storing all my precious tropical plants - replacing the plastic covers, checking the propane heaters and installing shelves for all the potted specimens. Around this time, we also begin planting thousands and thousands of spring blooming bulbs - daffodils, snowdrops, lilies, Camassia, alliums, muscari, and more. Many of this season’s bulbs are from Colorblends Flower Bulbs - a third generation wholesale flower merchant in nearby Bridgeport, Connecticut. For the next few weeks, we’ll be planting bulbs in the Stewartia Garden, in the tree pits, outside my Winter House kitchen, in the daffodil border, under my long and winding pergola, and in the sunken garden behind my Summer House - they will all look so marvelous come spring.
