The Q&A Archives: when to plant spring bulbs

Question: I live in Indianapolis and would like to know when to plant tulip and hyacinth bulbs to bloom in the spring.

I would also like to know when I can plant mums.

Thank you

Answer: Fall mums are generally available in the nurseries in September and October. You can plant them then. Same with spring flowering bulbs. Traditionally they are planted in October and November but if you can find them available for sale in September, you can plant them then, too. Enjoy your garden!
