Fall is the time to plant bulbs like tulips and crocuses. Stephanie of Garden Therapy suggests planting some of the bulbs in large containers now for next Spring. The containers will give you more options for placing the planters next year, once the bulbs bloom.
You can also get creative and plant bulbs using different color schemes.Nina has a link that explains the best way to plant bulbs. She also recommends large planters with good soil and drainage. She includes some beautiful photographs and links to other information about planting bulbs. Well done!
