This week on the Post, the late planting of spring bulbs. Gardening guides and articles usually advise getting most spring bulbs into the ground in September, and tulips in November. But it has been such a mild autumn here that now is actually a very good time to buy or order some bags of bulbs, many of which are on offer or at reduced prices.

Crocus bulbs can still be bought from various suppliers, including Farmer Gracy.
