Bury Your Bulbs in October

Sep 29, 2017

Right now we’re anticipating the rich yellows, oranges, and reds of fall, but it’s also time to start thinking about the pinks, purples, and whites of spring. In this Horticulture Day edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe is joined by horticulturists Cindy Haynes and Richard Jauron. They talk about planning and planting spring blooming bulbs.

Jauron says the coming weeks are the best time for planting any type of bulb.

"Basically, October is the best time, but you can do it as late as mid to late November if the weather is permitting. The main thing is they have to be in the ground before it freezes."

Haynes and Jauron also answer listener questions and emails.
