Now is the time to plant spring bulbs

One of the principal jobs at this time of year is getting spring bulbs planted in the ground to make sure we have lots of gorgeous flowers to greet us early next year. In the wild, bulbs are the plants that couldn’t compete with the other plant groups such as trees and shrubs. However, they found ways to take advantage of what was available to them and adapted to survive.

Living underground, they evolved to develop a store of food, remaining dormant until the conditions for growth triggered them to awaken. Many evolved in forest or woodland settings.
