Planting Crocus, Galanthus, and Spanish Bluebells

If you haven’t yet planted your spring-blooming bulbs, try to get it done soon.

Planting bulbs can be a a very labor intensive task. Every autumn, we plant thousands and thousands of bulbs here at my Bedford, New York farm. Over the last couple of weeks, my gardeners and outdoor grounds crew have planted bulbs along my winding pergola, beneath my allee of linden trees, in the gardens outside my Winter House, and in various spots throughout the Japanese Maple Grove. Different planting methods are used depending on the area, the size of the bulbs, and the amount of bulbs selected for the space. My sources include two Connecticut companies - Colorblends Wholesale Flowerbulbs and Van Engelen Inc. Wholesale Flower Bulbs.
