Even though it is almost Christmas you still have time to plant spring flowering bulbs such as daffodils, crocus, allium, tulips, grape hyacinths, hyacinths. They will be the first to greet you next spring. The crocus will sometimes bloom when there is snow on the ground. Here in Southeast Indiana, I have planted these bulbs as late as March – although that is not recommended. Also, these bulbs require little maintenance and the daffodils will come back for years. In fact, some archeologists look for daffodils to find old farmsteads where the house and barns are long gone, but the daffodils are still there blooming each spring.
