Choosing Bulbs For Spring Planting
Spring planting season is approaching soon. You have been thinking about it and now its time to make your decision. There are many factors that go into choosing the right plants for your garden, but one of the most important ones is how much sun they need. Plants with very little or no sunlight will not grow well in your garden, so you must choose wisely!
Plants need light all year round, but during the winter months they require less than those that get some. If you want to maximize your garden’s production of flowers and vegetables, then you must select plants that will thrive in your climate. Spring planting is the best time to start because there is a greater chance of getting good weather conditions. However, if you live in an area where the winters are harsh and cold, then spring planting might not be possible for whatever reason.
If you do not have enough space to plant everything in spring, then you can still choose the right plants for your garden. The following table lists some of the most popular flowering bulbs that can be planted in spring.

Bulbs are underground plant structures that store nutrients and moisture to enable new plants to grow when the conditions are right.

These types of stems can grow to be many times bigger than the actual plant itself, and they provide a place for the roots to take hold while storage carbohydrates for future growth and bloom production.
Bulbs are very unique when compared to most other plant organs. They enable plants to thrive in conditions where others would perish. They can survive under the harshest conditions and still provide the plants with the means to grow and produce flowers when the time is right.
