Same year bulbs!!
In past experience, as a beginner still, I have noticed that there are some bulbs you can plant that will not actually bloom until the following year. I do not want these as I am and instant gratification gardener. Can you recommend any bulbs to plant early spring and will bloom summer of the same year?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Most spring-blooming bulbs need to be planted in fall and they'll bloom the next year in spring -- so tulips, daffodils, etc. are probably not good choices for your instant gratification tendencies.

 

Most summer-blooming bulbs --- callas, dahlias, etc. will bloom the year you plant them. In fact, most continue to bloom all summer long.
