Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs in My Long Pergola Garden

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

One of our biggest tasks every autumn is planting thousands of bulbs here at my Bedford, New York farm. Yesterday, we started planting in my pergola garden - one of the first areas I see when I drive into my property. We planted Camassia and several Allium cultivars. This year, I selected bulbs from one of my favorite sources, Van Engelen Inc., a wholesale family-run flower bulb business located in Bantam, 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.
