December is here and if your thinking about planting bulbs now is the time to do it. Bed prep is very important. Till and prep bed to a depth of 10 to 12 inches deep. Incorporate a good slow release fertilizer per label recommendations. Bulbs should be planted at a depth of 5 to 6 inches deep with the pointed end of the bulb facing up. This should give you a good show of color this spring.
