Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs Under My Pergola

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

Every autumn we plant thousands and thousands of bulbs here at my Bedford, New York farm. Last week, we started planting in various beds including my beautiful pergola garden - one of the first areas I see when I drive into my property. We planted Camassia and several Allium cultivars. Many of our bulbs are from Colorblends Wholesale Flowerbulbs - a third generation 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.
