Anybody plant bulbs this fall?

Post by OD on Grass »

I planted over 300 bulbs this fall. Most of them being a field that I am going to fill with daffodils over time. Also planted some hyacinth, paperwhites, allium, tulips, crocus, and ranunculus bulbs. By the way, anybody know which direction a ranunculus bulb is supposed to be planted. I documented the planting on YouTube -
But what I’m really excited about is sharing the results in the spring!

What is everybody else planting? What are your favorites?

I planted 100 Tulips which I haven’t done for a few years. Probably do more next year.

60 crocus yesterday in the back yard along the property. If these do well I’ll be planting more next fall. The proplugger made this a very simple planting.

Pretty sure deer got all my crocus already. We’ll see. Is the pro plugger easy to get the dirt back out of to cover the bulbs? The plugger I bought is a nightmare to get the first out of (fast forwarded through the long and boring process in the video). I used a bulb auger with my drill and it was awesome!

It’s easy to get dirt out the back, it’s tapered to allow it to only come out the top. But if its muddy and full of moisture it will clog.

That makes sense! Sounds like a better design than the one I used.

I planted an amaryllis and 30 or so daffodils, along with some dutch irises and hyacinths. First time I've planted bulbs at the house, and for the life of me, I can't understand why they sell tulips this far south, since we don't get enough freezing weather for them to bloom on the 2nd year.
I tend to edit because I forgot to put something in my post.

I’ve heard that they usually don’t come back (although I didn’t know that was the reason) but we figured we would try some anyway and just get the one year or replant if we love them.

2-4” (with a few rogue 6”) sprouts all over the place right now. This week is supposed to be pretty warm but the weather man says low of 18 one night next week so we’ll see what happens 🤞🏼

About 90% of my hyacinths have come up. Some are a little behind I guess. I'll post a picture when they bloom.

Tulips I planted in front get more sun, they popped about a week ago. Back yard planting - nothing yet.
