Fall is the time to plant spring blooming bulbs such as hyacinths, daffodils and tulips. Look for them in your garden center in October and November. Summer blooming bulbs, tubers and corms can be planted now. Some of the most popular summer bloomers include Blood Lily, Caladium, Calla Lily, Canna, Dahlia, Elephant Ear, Freesia, Gladiolus, Oxalis, Pineapple Lily, Resurrection Lily, Sword Lily, Tuberose and Tuberous Begonia. Best wishes with your garden!
