It is time to plan for spring

If you love tulips now is the time to pick up some tulip bulbs. The flowers like sunlight and they bloom in the spring but are planted in the fall. The good news is that if you plant them this fall they will bloom every spring with minimal care.

Experts say to wait until the soil temperature is 60 or lower and before the first frost. We don’t really know when the first frost will be, but generally in St. Paul the best time to plant bulbs will be around the 20th of September but before October 15th.

Tulip bulbs are easy to plant and they look amazing when they bloom. All you need to do is dig a hole about six inches deep, put a bulb in it and bury the bulb.
