This is the time of the year when gardeners start thinking of spring. And it the right time to think of planting bulbs for beautiful spring color. The choices are amazing maybe the old standbys – daffodils and tulips are always popular and beautiful. Perhaps you are looking to try something new. How about Galanthus (snowdrops) for very early blooms and extend the bloom season with Scilla sibirica (Siberian squill) or Allium giganteum? The University of Minnesota Extension Yard and Garden site has great information for Minnesota Gardeners.
