Latest to plant bulbs

When is the latest I can plant bulbs for spring in Des Moines, IA?
Submitted by caroline.jones

You can plant spring-flowering bulbs until the ground freezes too hard to dig. That will depend on weather conditions and specific location. If you pile up leaves where you'd like to plant, you may be able to dig even after the New Year. The main thing to remember is that you should get bulbs into the ground rather than leave them sitting in your garage.
