Fall planted bulbs for spring flowers

Written by
Floret

Each fall as the weather starts to turn and farm clean up begins in earnest, I face two of my least favorite, but most necessary, tasks: digging up the dahlias and planting fall bulbs. Neither are fun, at least in my opinion.

At this time of year, all I want to do is curl up by the fire and drink coffee with a good book. The last thing I want to do is put on full rain gear and lug heavy crates of bulbs and tubers around our muddy fields.

But it’s the only way to ensure we’ll have loads of beauty in the coming season.

I try to approach both tasks with a positive attitude and be present to the fact that they are a gift to my future self.

After a long dismal winter, I will be so grateful for all the effort that I put in this fall. There’s nothing more wonderful than being greeted by flowers in early spring.  

The first couple of years we were flower farming we didn’t plant bulbs because they were always an afterthought. I would run out of steam at the end of the season and inevitably miss out on all of the great varieties.

One of the other reasons I resisted planting bulbs is because they were a financial investment and we didn’t have very much money. But after three or four springs of kicking myself for not having invested the previous fall, I finally overcame my hesitation and gave bulbs the chance they deserve.  

The first year I planted a few hundred tulips and five varieties of narcissus. They bloomed so abundantly and were so well received by our customers that I quadrupled the following year.

It’s only increased since then and now I approach the task of planting bulbs after the first fall frost as a necessity not a burden.

Out in the field we have a HUGE patch of narcissus that come back every season which I inevitably add to each year. Additionally, we also plant thousands of tulips, hyacinths and other spring bulbs both in our unheated tunnels (for super early blooms) and also outside in the fields.

This makes it so we can start harvesting bulbs in early March and continue all the way through Mother’s Day.

Without bulbs there would be no spring flowers. Even though it can be easy to want to skip tucking some bulbs in the ground this fall, if you can make yourself do it, you will be so happy that you did come spring.

If you rely on the local hardware store and garden center, the bulb scene is pretty boring and limited to bright, clear colors and standard forms. Occasionally, you’ll find a few treasures. Sometimes even Costco has a handful of awesome varieties! 

But for the most part, don’t bet on finding the good stuff at the big box stores.  

For the best selection and the most unique varieties you’ll want to explore your mail order options, both from print catalogs and online shops. There are some wonderful sources for specialty bulbs, but the fantastic selection is only available to those who shop early.

If you want the good stuff, don’t delay! 

Note: If you do stock up on bulbs early, it is best to wait until after the first fall frost to plant them. Until you’re ready to plant, you can keep the bulbs in their ventilated bags, but just be sure to store them in a cool, dry place with good air circulation.  

We’ve been growing narcissus and daffodils in abundance for many years, but this past spring a long-standing dream was realized and we got to conduct a 70+ variety trial looking for new treasures to add to our list of offerings.

Of all the trials we’ve conducted over the years, this was hands down my favorite. The variation in this group of plants is mind boggling, from teeny tiny fragrant multi headed blossoms to big ruffly blooms that look more like peonies.

Flowers come in a vast range of shades including white, ivory, buttercream, apricot, yellow and gold. I found myself jumping up and down every time a new variety bloomed in the field.

This narcissus trial, while incredibly fun, was also an enormous amount of work. The process of documenting each variety in both words and images was a time consuming task.

We found ourselves laughing more than once about “living the dream” while bundled up in multiple layers of down coats, shivering with frozen fingers frantically taking notes and pictures.

But the effort was absolutely worth it and we discovered so many gems in the process that we can’t wait to share with you.

Daffodils have a bad rap. The mention of the word instantly conjures up visions of giant school bus yellow flowers that punctuate the landscape in early spring.

But the varieties we trialed are in a class of their own. Many were ruffled, fragrant and could easily be mistaken for peonies or garden roses.

Our trial was focused on varieties that held up well to early spring weather, possessed unique coloring or form, were fragrant if at all possible and had strong stems that were suitable for flower arranging.

Narrowing the big list of 70+ varieties felt nearly impossible, but in the end we settled on 38.

In addition to being beautiful and weather resistant, daffodils are also extremely hardy and can handle very cold temperatures, the deer don’t eat them and they come back year over year, multiplying over time.

They are low maintenance, seemingly thrive off neglect and couldn’t be easier to grow.

What’s not to love!?

Another spring favorite here on the farm are tulips. We grow tens of thousands of them every year, bypassing the standard varieties, instead seeking out the doubles, parrots and fringed beauties.  

Over the years, we’ve trialed nearly 100 varieties, but consistently come back to two dozen hard working favorites. Tulips come in a dazzling rainbow of colors, are extremely easy to grow and make a wonderful long lasting addition to flower arrangements.  

One of the great things about tulips is that you can grow a ton of them in a really small amount of space and the flowers can be harvested and stored for weeks at a time.

Get additional planting and harvesting tips for tulips here.

I’m so excited to share even more details on how we grow tulips here at Floret in our upcoming Fall Mini Course, a new video-based course. I’ll also be sharing a tour of all my favorite varieties so you can witness their magic for yourself. If you’re not already signed up, you can do so here. It’s free!

Anemones and ranunculus are two of the most popular spring flowers that we grow here at Floret. They also generate the most growing related questions because they have special requirements for success. But once you know the secrets, they are actually quite easy to grow.

What makes both of these long-lasting cut flowers so amazing is that they bloom for 6-8 weeks in the spring, come in a wide range of colors and are a novelty item for most local markets.

I’m really excited to share exactly how we grow these spring beauties in our upcoming Fall Mini Course too.

On Monday, September 24th, we will be opening the Floret Shop for our annual fall bulb sale. It is stocked with all the amazing varieties that made the cut here on the farm.

You can preview the full line here. But be sure and set your alarm for 8 a.m. PST because quantities are limited and we always sell out quickly.

Eager to introduce gardeners to my latest favorites, I’m giving away several big goody boxes full of beauty for your spring garden.

    Hi. I just found your Instagram page a few days ago. Thank you for sharing your hard work with the world. Your flowers are now popping up on my feed and I couldn’t be happier. We plant lots of food crops like carrots and peas and seeds and such to feed our family, but I’ve not taken the time/garden space for many flowers. However, this mama is needing to plant some more flowers. Spring bulb blooms are my absolute favorite type of flower. And peonies, I love peonies too. Thank you again!

    Anemones are my favorite by far, with ranunculus as a close second. I also love all the variety available in tulips and daffodils (which I learned about from following your wok). I am so excited because this is the first time in years that I have a garden that I can plant in! I am so excited to grow some beautiful stuff on my property this year.

    Definitely allium & ranunculus for me!!! Ranunculus are breathtakingly gorgeous & super easy to grow! I’m obsessed w/their tissue papered petals & color combinations. On the other hand, alliums look extraterrestrial. I was elated the first time I mastered growing allium (and other bulbs) here in Florida! Alliums sway in the breeze like soft, fluffy balloons of color. Gardening in Florida, it’s challenging to grow tulips, daphs & hyacinth. However, thru trial & error, I’ve conquered the task. Without my fridge & perfect timing for planting out (while it’s consistently cool for another 6-8 weeks) after chilling. I wouldn’t know how heavenly it is to cut these beauties for inside arrangements. I can’t wait for this fall’s planting & seed sowing for next spring’s magic ! :)

    I have to say that now that I’ve finally moved to a State with more than just Spring/Summer weather all year round, I can finally get to plant some of my favorite flowers. This is the first time for me to plant beautiful blooms for next spring, thus I’m crossing fingers it all works out as pictured in my head. My favorite flowers to plant in this time of the year, would have to be Peonies, Bearded Irises, Crocus, Tulips and Narcissus of course. Although, as I said, it would be my first year planting them, so wish me luck! However, because I just became obsessed with growing flowers, and we have a short summer season, I might even start sooner than the norm (like sometime in January) with crops that are for the summer, but indoors. This upcoming year, it’s going to be all about experimenting and learning how to grow beautiful things, in odd timing (again, due to short summers), but it’s all part of the fun. I do have to say thank you, because between blog posts, and your mini-courses, I’ve found a wealth of knowledge that I’m putting to good use. So I’m very grateful for having you share what you’ve learned in your many years of experimenting and learning yourself. Can’t wait for the upcoming Fall mini-course, because I have a bunch of dahlias to harvest this fall, and it’s my first year doing it. Oh and congrats on another almost ‘sold out’ fall bulb event.

    My current favorites are daffodils, due to my new proximity to many hungry deer. I was so excited to order so many beautiful varieties yesterday, and I am anxiously awaiting the color they will bring to my newly acquired, large, somewhat drab landscape. I have been making plans for adding beautiful flowering plants, and have been scouring the pages of the Floret book ever since receiving it a couple weeks ago. I just placed an order for some snapdragons and sweet peas (among others) and can’t wait for those either! I am not a flower farmer (yet!) but my hope is that my .8 acre yard will be filled with blooms in the coming years. Thanks so much for all in inspiration!

    Tulips! One autumn, while extremely morning-sick due to pregnancy, I crawled out and planted some tulip bulbs. I then completely forgot about them.
    That spring, with a new baby, I noticed a new weed coming up all over my yard. A few weeks later it became clear that it was some very lovely tulips and then I remembered the gift I had given myself that autumn and was so thankful! I had no time to make my yard pretty that year, but I did have some beautiful tulips. They always remind me of that spring and my sweet baby. (they were “victorias secret” and “charming beauty”and “pink star”)

    I’m seriously just starting out, my grandma has been a gardener all her life, one of the best places to be was in her garden oasis, it stuck with me so much I ended up writing a high school paper on it lol! I know dorkish but I got an A sooo … Her irises have been split and passed throughout the family, traveling from Missouri and Nebraska all the way to Texas and even Kentucky I believe. Right now we’re in a house in Maryland with no flowers what so ever and I need something to spruce things up and just ordered some Sweet Peas and a Ranunculus, probably too ambitious but I can never start small. Here’s hoping the gardening genes have been passed down to me!

    This past spring I discovered double tulips and I don’t believe I’ll ever be able to have a spring without them being part of it- ever again! I remember as a young girl my parents didn’t really have a bunch of flowers growing. I was at a farmers market with my dad one day and there was just a cardboard box with unknown bulbs that my dad let me buy a handful of. I was lucky enough to get some tulips and daffodils mixed in color, and planted my very own “mini” garden which started my love of flowers at a young age.

    Beautiful photos as always! I look forward to planting my spring bulbs every fall. There’s something always therapeutic about putting a bunch of odd, brownish shapes into the ground, and then waiting for them to transform into gorgeous blooms in the spring! My favorites are usually the tiny treasures: squill, dwarf iris, snowdrops, muscari! I’m loving some of the new tulip varieties y’all have this year. I gotta get my hands on some of the ‘Green Star’ beauties!

    I love any kind of daffodil! Last fall my husband and I bought a home built in 1932 and in spring we had tons of daffodils pop up that one of the previous owners had planted! It was magical. We had SO many – for about 2 months I had plenty to cut for my home (in every room) and give away to friends. I look forward to planting new varieties this fall!

I can totally relate to your living the dream comment while actually feeling cold, wet, and miserable!! Haha. My problem isn’t upfront cost with bulbs, it’s space. With only half an acre, I can’t put more than a couple hundred bulbs in the ground. Also tulips and daffodils often have really short stems in our short and hot winter here in zone 8a texas so trialing them is a must but something i don’t have time and effort for yet.

    Your ranuculus are glorious! My two favorite bulbs are daffodils and Lilly of the valley. I like to tuck them in random places at the edge of the woods. I always forget where I put them and then get a nice surprise every spring!

    If I had to pick one, I’d have to say Daffodils. Growing up my mom had daffodils galore growing all along our front fence. They were always such a bright sign of spring. -Though I have to admit after seeing those Cooper Image Tulips … I might have a new favorite that I can grow in my own garden.

    I am so excited to start this journey with your gorgeous flowers. I have a few flowers planted in my yard right now, most of which came from my next door neighbor who was so eager to get rid of some of her overgrown flowers. I would have to say out of the very small amount I have, I love the lilies. This Spring/Summer I watched them open and close each day and it was just so raw to watch their short lifespan. Thank you for sharing this post and some tips, I look forward to starting the mini Fall course in a couple weeks!

    Of the bulbs you have on offer, I am hard-pressed to select a favorite from the leucojum, ranunculus “Champagne”, and double tulip “Gudoschnik.” It is like having to pick a favorite child. You love them all, but for their own unique qualities. However, in the spirit of choosing only one, I have ruled out the ranunculus. Where I live, in zone 7, our winter temperatures are simply too extreme for fall-planted ranunculus to survive without aggressive protective measures. Here, they are more easily planted in spring. And whilst I love the delicateness and hopefulness of the leucojum (and the similar snowdrop), I have decided on the Gudoschnik double tulip as my favorite. The colors are gorgeous, striking, and varied, and the blossoms are reminiscent of peonies, one of my other favorite flowers. The Gudoschnik ticks an awful lot of boxes, but most of all, it just makes me happy.

    Oh it’s so hard to choose! I guess I’d say tulips are quite dear to my heart because of two specific memories. We had some in our yard when I was a kid and we had several years of very mild winters and my mom just never got around to digging them up to store someplace cooler. We figured they were goners but then one spring I looked out the window and there were several tulips just beginning to bloom! And then when I spent some time living abroad in Ireland, I arrived just when tulips were beginning to bloom there. It was so comforting to see a reminder of home and my mom in those initial homesick days adjusting to a new country. :)

    I wish I could say my favorite bulb is a ranunculus because they are so beautiful but I have had some hard times growing them in the past…although I’m sure it doesn’t help that I am a super novice gardener. 🙈 so I would have to say my favorite bulbs are daffodils because they are such a quintessential spring time flower.

    There once stood a farmhouse tucked back across the field in the woods behind my childhood home. It quietly had gotten reabsorbed into the landscape until, finally, it was just a stone foundation. So long ago, that no one knew when. Each spring, all the forest floor around it would transform into a purple carpet. Tens of thousands of purple hyacinths in every direction. As a little girl, my mom shared this treasure with me. I never took it for granted, this magic sent to me from , as I imagined it, a lovely young farmer’s wife generations ago. As the world began to green each spring I would visit daily, breathlessly awaiting those little blooms’ return and our official start of spring. When it finally came, I spent as many hours as I could find gathering as much as my little hands could hold to take home as a gift for my mom. And I continued this tradition until I left home after college. All these years later, one whiff of this sweet flower’s aroma takes me right back to that hillside in the purple spring sunshine .

    I think tulips might be my most favorite flower, period (might be because it’s like choosing a favorite child- you can’t)! But I grew Floret ranunculus and anemone for the first time this year and fell in love hard! I couldn’t believe how many blooms for so many weeks I got from my small patch!

    My favorite fall bulb is one that was my Grabsmothers favorite. Their bright colors, layering petals, and seemingly endless blooms capture her joy, beauty, and grace. She lives with me in the plot of Persian Buttercup Ranuculus each spring.

    My mama shared her bulbs with me over 35 when we moved into this old house.
    She had a “friendship garden” and shared bulbs and clippings with me and anyone who want some. She learned everything from her father who was an avid gardener (from England) who taught her about “friendship gardens” and sharing.
    A wonderful legacy!

    There is something about the hardiness and cheerfulness of daffodils.

They’re a bit of nostalgic rush for me too as I grew up in Washington, and would often visit the tulip fields up the road from you in the springtime with my mother.

    My favorite bulb hands down is Narcissus “Thalia”. It has such a wonderful scent along with multiple flowers per stem, and it’s really nice to just fill a pitcher full and bask in the scent. My mother has it interplanted with blue Muscari, which is a lovely color and texture combination. Runners up would probably be Pushkinia, Scilla siberica and Nectaroscordum siculum, though they are less suited to flower arrangements…better for naturalizing.

    In the small Alaskan town I live in we are fortunate enough to have a phenomenal flower farmer who, every spring, brightens our town, table-tops, and windowsills with her wonderful bouquets of tulip stems. It’s a sight for sore eyes after a long Alaskan winter. The whole town seems to breathe a sigh of relief the moment that they arrive. So those are probably my favorite. They’re a bit of nostalgic rush for me too as I grew up in Washington, and would often visit the tulip fields up the road from you in the springtime with my mother. I sure miss not being able to do that anymore.

    Specifically speaking: The bulbs that led me here, are the Copper Image Tulips you grow. They’re so enchanting – I’m completely obsessed with them! Just discovering the Gudoshnik Double now too through your post, wow. Looking forward to trying my hand at growing both of these and gifting some bulbs to our beloved local flower farm. Who knows maybe they’ll catch on! Cooper Image Tulips every spring? Ahh. . .

    I absolutely adore daffodils…they make me happy and I get nostalgic about them because they used to grow in abundance around old homesteads where I grew up. When my husband and I were dating, he once found a field full of them and cut at least 50 of them as a surprise for me and I hold that memory very dear. But in all honesty, I love all bulb flowers because they were always the first signs of Spring. Filling up vases with hyacinth, daffodils, narcissus, and tulips along with foraged dogwood blooms and placing them around the house is such a simple pleasure.

They add something special to arrangements and florists love them. I can’t think of anything I don’t like about them, except that I wish they could go through the summer! These are my current new spring favorites.

    My favorite fall planted bulb that I grew last year was Princess Irene Tulip. Funny story, I waited too long to harvest her and she blew wide open in the field. Rather than try to sell her in that state, i used the bunch to get a beautiful armload shot, and then had people in my town nominate some deserving teachers as it was teacher appreciation week and donated the flowers to those individuals. It turned out be a wonderful little event for the teachers and me.

Come spring, when the daffodils starting blooming, I was in complete awe and instantly fell in love. She had planted numerous varieties, most of which I never knew existed since I was used to the standard yellow. That unexpected gift of daffodils was what opened my eyes to the stunning world of cut flowers. Because of that spring, daffodils will always be my favorite bulb, but since my discovery of ranunculus, they’re getting a run for their money!

    I always thought daffodils were a little boring, but after pouring over your site for tips and tricks the last few weeks I’ve fallen in love with narcissus! We live in a small town in Kentucky, and you’re right – finding interesting flowers at our local bricks and mortar stores is hard to do! Question: What is the best way to plant tulips and narcissus together if you have only a small space? I’m planning to use these as an edge (or as clusters) in front of a row of knockout roses, so it’s about 2 feet by 20 feet, or so.

    I would have to say daffodils, I live on a farm where the previous owner grew hundreds of daffodils. This was 30+ years ago! They have come up every year since then and I love watching them slowly spread across they yard. Half the fun is seeing them pop in places you don’t remember them being the previous year. They definitely make early Spring more bearable :)

    I planted some Pink Charms last year, and thought a classic shape with a twist of pink, no biggie. But they were gorgeous! I also look forward to seeing and smelling my hyacinths by the mailbox. And every year I kick myself for not putting in a few more. Not this year, in they go! No regrets at the mailbox this year!

My mother grew bulbs every year when I was young and I have developed a love for them through her, they will always have a place in my garden. These days I find myself quite drawn to unique miniature daffodils and to alliums. But seeing all your amazing narcissus makes me think I will be needing to work on adding these beauties to the garden. 💕

    When we first moved into our house 15 years ago, I planted daffodils. They came up beautifully in the spring. I had no idea how to care for them and ended up cutting the greenery down before it had died down. Well, every year after my poor little daffodils would come up with no flowers. :( Just poor headless little daffodils. I am looking forward to trying them again this year and not cutting their heads off. I would love some of these beautiful varieties!

    I’m not sure how I’m going to endure the suspense through this upcoming winter – I splurged on over 1000 bulbs for this fall and I’m beside myself with excitement! You’re right, the hard work in the fall is so beyond worth it. My new favorite is the Pink Star tulip, a double tulip VERY easily mistaken for a peony!! 😍 I’m so excited for your fall mini course, thank you so much for your endless wisdom and resources!

    When we were dating, my husband gave me tulips but thought they were roses. When I shared they were tulips, he said the conversation with the cashier made sense. Turns out, roses were 50% off, and when he took his tulips to the register and was charged full price, he said the sign said roses are 50% off. The cashier said they are and repeated the full price due. He was like, but roses are half price, and the cashier, again, said they are – but never said, and you have tulips. He still bought, thinking she was crazy, until I shared that they were tulips (which I love even more than roses, so excellent choice). They have since become my most favorite, because I think of my sweet fella and have a giggle remembering every time I see!
