While searching for more information about our spring bulb line-up I came across this handy little bulb planting guide. This is the same information that is shipped with the Park Seed orders. The full booklet tells you how to plant, where to plant, and other general care tips for a long list of garden plants. I thought this bulb chart was especially handy.
