It's fall and that means it is time to plant bulbs for spring blooms. I'm joined by Jay Hutchins, grin-eral manager of Brent & Becky Bulbs and he's going to give us a primer on these cheerful spring blooming plants.

Dave this was a great audio interview. I browsed through the catalog while listening. So many wonderful new bulbs to try. Now I just have to decide which ones I want to get.

Looking forward to the spring interview. Thumbs up

I have been adding some of the small bulb plants to my raised sempervivum beds. This spring was such a treat when they started blooming.
I see they have some that would work very well for me, without over taking the semps. Thumbs up

There are some very tiny narcissus with grass like leaves, also some crocus that have very fine, short foliage. Hurray!
