September: Plant Bulbs for Early Spring Colour

Order spring-flowering bulbs now and plant them as soon as they arrive. Work bone meal into bottom of planting holes for better growth. By using “lasagna” layers (or bunk bed layers as one nursery man calls them), with the late bloomers planted deepest, followed by mid-season bloomers and finally, by the earliest flowers, you can have new waves of colour and fragrance over several weeks next spring.
