Planting Daffodil Bulbs in My Long Border

My Bedford, New York farm is buzzing with fall activity - my gardeners and outdoor grounds crew are winterizing the greenhouses, blowing leaves, and planting thousands of spring-blooming bulbs.

During the first years of my farm ownership, I established a long daffodil border along one side of my property. This border extends from my Summer House past the stable and down to the Japanese maple grove. Every spring, when the flowers are in bloom, I carefully assess what areas need more flowers and color, and every autumn we plant in those spaces. This year, our daffodil bulbs are from Colorblends Flowerbulbs in nearby Bridgeport, Connecticut. The varieties we got include 'Tom Pouce,' 'Falconet,' 'Pipe Major,' and 'Accent.'

Here are some photos. And please tune-in to QVC later today at 2pm ET when I share some of my newest holiday decorating products. It's never too early to start planning for the holidays.
