In spring, people see giant alliums in their neighbors’ gardens, then run into garden centers expecting to buy that plant, said Mark Yadon, vice president at Mischler’s Florist and Greenhouses in Williamsville.
“You can’t buy them in spring,” Yadon said.
The same goes for crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils, tulips, fritillaria and other spring bulbs.
If you want those flowers in spring, plant the bulbs in autumn. You can plant them now through mid-November, if you can still work the soil then.
