I would like to buy bulbs now, but I have heard you cannot plant them until fall. Are there bulbs you can plant in the spring? If so, when would they bloom?

There are spring blooming bulbs which are available and should be planted in the fall and there are summer blooming bulbs which are available in the spring and should be planted right away. Any bulbs you find in garden centers now are summer blooming bulbs and can be planted immediately. Depending upon the type of bulbs, expect them to flower between June and September. Best wishes with your new bulbs.
