Southern Gardening: Plant spring-flowering bulbs now
The weather outside may be frightful, but gardeners who want early spring color get out in it to plant spring-flowering bulbs.
Tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocus are among the first plants to give us colorful signs that winter is almost over. Many gardeners refer to all of these as bulbs, even though some grow from underground structures that include corms, rhizomes and tubers.
These spring-flowering plants do not provide the instant color generally associated with flowering bedding plants. Bulb crops make us plan ahead.
