It’s fall planting time, and the garden centers are bursting with wonderful trees and shrubs. On top of that, I just received my Colorblends catalog in the mail yesterday. Colorblends is my favorite place to order bulbs, and I’ve had great success with all of the items I’ve ordered from them. They will ship to you at the appropriate planting time, so you don’t have to worry about putting them in the ground too early. Important note- they do sell out of the most popular items, so if you see something you really love, don’t hesitate to get your order in!
I started ordering from Colorblends about 10 years ago, and their bulbs never disappoint. This double daff just turned up in my garden as part of a mix I ordered, and I can’t identify it. Whatever it is, I want more next year!
Daffodils are a perfect choice for the DC Metro Area. They will naturalize (come back year after year, often forming clumps), squirrels don’t dig up the bulbs, the deer don’t eat them, they’re affordable, and they require very little effort. Best of all, they bring incredible cheer all spring long. Love!
My very favorite source for bulbs is Colorblends. Check them out and order early in the fall- they do sell out!
