After a long winter, do you want to wake up to a burst of spring color in your flowerbeds and borders next spring?

Then you need a landscape company to plant spring bulbs now while it’s still fall.

In this blog, you’ll learn more about the variety of bulbs available to grace your Rockland County, NY property, as well as why you need a professional landscape company to plant them for you.

Plant Bulbs Now for Spring Beauty

It’s hard to believe that there’s still work to do out in the garden, but fall is the perfect time to plant spring bulbs.

Bulbs are a good investment for homeowners because of the years of spring flowers they provide. The bulb holds all the food underground that the flower needs to survive our winters.

While not all spring flowers come from a true bulb, the idea is the same for these cold-hardy plants—they store their food in their roots. In other words, these special perennials come as a complete package.

Here is a breakdown of different types of “bulbs”:

  • Daffodils and tulips are true bulbs
  • Crocuses have corms
  • Anemones have tubers
  • Lily of the valley have rhizomes
  • Ranunculus have tuberous roots.

Your local landscape company will plant a wide variety of bulbs that give your beds and borders continuous color in various shapes and textures. Plus, your garden technicians will plant bulbs in curves, circles and other shapes to draw the eyes to your flowerbeds and gardens.
