Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs in My Pergola Garden

It’s time to plant all those spring-blooming bulbs!

As many of you know, every autumn we plant thousands and thousands of bulbs here at my Bedford, New York farm - I hope you caught last night's episode of "Martha Knows Best" on HGTV. We already started planting in various beds including my beautiful pergola garden - it's one of the first areas I see when I drive into my property. This season’s bulbs are from Colorblends Flower Bulbs - a third generation wholesale flower merchant in nearby Bridgeport, Connecticut. I always find it exciting to plant bulbs in the fall that you won't see for many months to come - it's such a wonderful surprise of color when they bloom in spring.
