Plant Now, Enjoy Later

Don’t wait until next spring to start planting your garden. Spend a little time in the dirt now and enjoy the pretty blooms that will appear on that first warm day. Another reason not to procrastinate: Unlike other plants, bulbs actually need at least six weeks of cold weather to grow, making fall the right time to get them in the ground. (If you live in a climate where the ground doesn’t freeze, you can hold off. Buy prechilled bulbs in the very early spring and plant them immediately.)
