Fall is the prime time for planting of hardy spring flowering bulbs. Bulbs and perennials need plenty of water
and good drainage. If water has a tendency to stand in the planting area,
you'll want to break up hard sub-soil and put in a layer of drainage
material such as coarse gravel, broken stone or sifted cinders below your
Summer-blooming Dutch Bulbs and perennials are not fussy
about soil - provided it is not too heavy and sticky. If soil is heavy,
loosen it with lots of humus, sand, gypsum, etc. If very light, add
moisture holders - humus, peat mold, etc. If you have a soil with a high
clay content, it can be improved by adding compost, peat moss or some
other source of organic material. The organic material should be worked in
the top twelve inches of soil (eighteen inches is even better).
