Next year’s garden may seem far away, but you can get it off to a great start by planting spectacular bulbs this fall. Some add much-anticipated color to the bare winter landscape, others jazz up summer borders, and still others bloom into fall. Many of these choices will slowly naturalize if left to drift casually through beds and borders. In moist, well-drained soil, colonization often comes more rapidly.

Overall, bulbs make few demands other than well-drained soil. Simply dig a hole in an appropriate location, plant according to package directions, add a light sprinkling of 10-10-10 fertilizer, water, and forget about it. The bulbs will take it from there and delight you with their colorful surprise.
