As the summer winds down, itâ€™s never too early to start thinking about fall and what additions or subtractions you might want to make to your garden.Â More and more people are learning that fall provides a â€śsecond seasonâ€ť of planting and that itâ€™s not just about maintenance and clean up in the garden!

Spring in Vermont is hard to predict, but the past few weeks have been sunny almost every day with a beautiful, light breeze. This is not only good for us gardeners (although we’ve been feverishly watering), but has also quickly brought to life many of our Spring-Blooming Bulbs, early-blooming Perennials, trees and meadows. I took a quick walk around the neighborhood today and captured several of my favorite plants. I hope you enjoy!
Many of us are lucky enough to be experiencing the budding and blooming of Fall-Planted Bulbs all across the country. I took a trip to Boston, Massachusetts a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised that spring is in full swing there! Gorgeous Cherry Blossom Trees cascading over the streets, cheerful Daffodils blooming in every garden bed and green growth everywhere! It really gets me thinking and starting to plan my garden for next spring.

Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs.Â This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible.Â In this blog you will find a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores and why bulb size matters.
Did you not get around to planting Tulips and Daffodils and now have a snow-covered garden? If you are in hardiness zones 4-7, try layering bulbs in large containers and placing them in the garage immediately. Come spring, bring outside and voila – A gorgeous array of early spring color to beautify your porch or patio!
Although squirrel and gopher watching may be a fun pastime for you and your family, their tendency to snack on freshly-planted bulbs is not so amusing. Donâ€™t let this discourage you from planting these gorgeous spring-bloomers â€“ With a few simple steps you can keep hungry critters away and enjoy the fruits of your labor come spring!
Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country. However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms â€“ It is all about choosing the right plants. Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.
Butterfly Daffodils are a favorite in the spring garden for their stunning double centers, frills, and unique color combinations that resemble a butterfly. They are a knockout both in the garden and cut for spring bouquets. Try planting a group this fall for an elegant, whimsical show in mid spring.
Who doesnâ€™t love rave reviews? Below are a handful of our favorite 5 Star Customer Reviews of fall-planted bulbs, along with the pictures they sent in of their blooms. Enjoy!
This past fall, my friend Jintina and I layered hundreds of fall bulbs in our city garden bed. We patiently waited throughout the winter months and once spring came, along with it came a rainbow of beautiful blooms! I captured pictures of as many different blooms as I could (there were new varieties blooming each day) and am happy to report that our layered planting was a gorgeous success!
