3. Plant Flower Bulbs this Autumn for Gorgeous Blooms in the Spring
It’s no secret that thriving gardens need proper planning and preparation. Plant flower bulbs in autumn, and you’ll see the first bursts of colour in spring!
Take your pick from the most popular and best-loved flower bulbs of all — tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and crocuses, as well as many other varieties perfect for the season. Since bulbs bloom at different times during the spring, you can plant them among other perennials to add splashes of colour in the garden.
Tip: Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible. This provides time to establish strong root systems before the winter frosts set in. While the water inside the bulbs might freeze, it doesn't harm the cells of the bulbs themselves. Bulbs are available at a Lowe’s Fall Garden Centre near you.
4. Use Full, Fragrant Trees & Shrubs for Simple & Eye-Catching Impact
These fall favourites bring a sense of height, structure, or texture alongside your blooms in your garden design. When your flowers begin to fade as the season gets cooler, they ensure your landscape remains an attractive display.
