Things I Wish I Knew Before Planting Fall Bulbs

Avoid my rookie mistakes when planting bulbs for spring color

The best way to learn about gardening is to just start digging, but you can also find out a lot by asking a gardener what they've done wrong. I've planted a lot of bulbs over the years, and learned a lot of valuable lessons and easy tricks for making planting easier. In this piece for FamilyHandyman.com, I share my favorite tools, best bulbs for naturalizing, which ones are least appealing to deer, and even how crickets can help you plant at the right time. I also share expert advice from two top bulb retailers, Brent and Becky's Bulbs and Colorblends.
