Spring-flowering Bulbs: an Introduction

Producing flowers from bulbs may be the easiest way to grow flowers: just put a bulb in the ground, and a few months later you have gorgeous flowers.

This site is only about spring-flowering bulbs, like tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, etc. Although these bulbs produce their flowers in the spring, they must be planted in the fall. For this reason, some nurseries refer to them as fall bulbs. This can obviously be somewhat confusing. Just remember: plant in the fall, bloom in the spring, and you'll be fine.

I've divided my site into 3 sections: Buying, Planting, and a List of Bulbs. Click on the links below to get you to the appropriate section:
