Planting Bulbs

With the approach of fall, now is the time to get those
bulbs in the ground for spring blossoms such as tulips,
hyacinths, daffodils and lilies. For the best results:

* Plant before the first frost.

* Dig a trench and place the soil on a plastic sheet.

* Place the bulbs in the trench according to your design,
but don't let them touch. Make sure they are facing the
right way up.

* Replace the soil.

* Water thoroughly. You can also add a layer of mulch to
keep the bulbs moist.

Now all you have to do is wait for spring to see those
healthy green sprouts that will grow into colorful flowers.
