Those of us living in zone 6/7 have a sweet spot in the bulb planting season. Two variables converge to make it the loveliest of planting times.
Element #1 - Bulbs are on-sale. E-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. I just made my pilgrimage to a favorite greenhouse, Eltzroth and Thompson. Bulbs are 50% off. I picked up 20 jonquil bulbs and 25 tulip bulbs, along with two bulbs for indoor forcing. I also bought an exquisitely simple blue glass forcing jar. All for $25.
E & T said that the sale is running until everything is gone. Also - they have this terrific set up - where you can just buy your bulbs-per-bulb. Little bags are supplied and you fill them up with a mix of whatever you are craving.
Element #2 - We can still plant bulbs down here for the next few weeks. Last year, I planted my bulbs over Thanksgiving.
So, what are you doing still reading this? Go on now. Get shopping.
