There are a few factors that come into play when planting spring bulbs. You will want to make sure the area you are planting is well-tilled. Compost is great for helping enrich the soil, which can boost the bulb’s growth. The depth of your hole depends on the size of the bulb.
Happy Halloween from Frisella Nursery! Here’s a look at what some of our team members and/or their children dressed up as this year. Notice, there’s a monarch in the bunch!

If you enjoy learning about Monarchs, there is no better learning experience than watching their metamorphosis first-hand. Bobbie Tracy, one of Frisella Nursery’s own landscape designers, has made raising and observing Monarchs a hobby and is happy to show you the way.
