Planting Spring Blooming Bulbs Around the Greenhouse

If you live in the New York City area and feel you’ve run out of time to plant all those spring-blooming bulbs after yesterday’s snow storm, don’t worry - temperatures are expected to be in the 40s this weekend. You can still get them in the ground.

As many of you know, every autumn we plant thousands and thousands of bulbs at my farm. It’s so exciting to see the swaths of color in the garden beds after a cold, dreary winter. Over the last couple of weeks, the outdoor grounds crew carefully planted bulbs around my main greenhouse. Different planting methods were used depending on the area and the amount of bulbs selected for the space. This year, some of our sources include Van Engelen Inc., and Colorblends Wholesale Flower Bulbs - two great bulb companies in Connecticut. They will all look so marvelous come spring.

Here are some photos... and happy planting!
