It is time to think about bulbs

My garden this year isn’t the garden I planned. I bought some seeds before the stay at home order and because of that, I have a garden. By the time gardening season started the local nurseries were out of everything because gardening is very popular this year. I found and still find plants at the Saint Paul Farmer’s market which is where I got the plants for my flower boxes.

I would like to put in some more tulips for next year and a few other plants that grow from bulbs. The bulbs need to go in the ground in the fall.  I will probably buy my bulbs via mail order this year. I plan on placing an order soon, like this week before they run out.

If there is one thing I have learned from the pandemic it is that I need to plan ahead and when possible buy ahead.

Now is a good time to start thinking about bulbs.


Try the University of Minnesota Extension for learning about any kind of gardening in Minnesota. There is a section about bulbs too. complete with “how too” videos.
