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. To enter to win one of 5 deluxe bulb collections, simply add a comment to the post below. In it, please share your favorite fall planted bulb or flower. I’ll randomly draw 5 names and announce the winners here September 27th. Note: This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. 

Cut Flower Garden Fall Mini CourseFinally, as I mentioned above, we will be sharing a series of 4 video tutorials in early October where we’ll dig deep into growing tulips in small spaces, how to grow anemones and ranunculus, plus how to dig, divide and store dahlia tubers.

I can’t wait to share all of my tips and tricks on these great garden additions. If you’re not already signed up for the Fall Mini Course, you can do so HERE.

It’s free and you can watch wherever you live. I can’t wait to see you there!

    My husband has removed something like 10 tons of concrete from our backyard this year so we could plan and plant a new garden in a previously unusable space, and I’m thrilled to finally have a sunny spot for planting in our very shady yard. Fall-planted bulbs that I can see from the windows are near the top of my planting list.

    Of those fall bulbs I have grown before I have enjoyed tulips and irises. Ranunculus intrigues me and I think they would be so beautiful in my yard. The blooms are delicate and sweet. I’m planning to terrace a steep hillside in my front yard and would love to include them so I’m very much looking forward to the mini class online so I can learn all the secrets to making them successful.

    I’m most excited to see my new narcissus in the spring! In college, I worked as a hired hand for a few families planting flowers, digging weeds, raking leaves, you name it. One of I my fondest memories was planting Narcissus around the entire perimeter of a farm picket white fence. It was a ton of work but I loved seeing them in bloom. This will be the first time (20 years later) that I get to plant my very own “fence” of Narcissus. 300!

    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 :)

    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!

    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!

    I have always loved hyacinth… but daffodils are always a welcome sign of spring after a long winter!

    Last year I loved tulips but after seeing your daffodil selection I am excited to try them this year. I also love all the white bulbs, snow drops and hyacinth.

    Tulips are the staple bulb in our yard. We’ve managed to find different varieties from the box store by shopping the annual bulb sale at the local botanical garden. I’d love to try ranunculus soon!

    La Belle Époque tulip…when the fields and forest fade to brown, this bulb reminds me that peachy pinks will return!

    I grew ranunculus from bulbs I purchased from you last year and they were amazing. So much beauty in the grey drab of early spring here in pdx.

    I’ve always loved daffodils, even the school bus yellow ones.
