Planting bulbs in the fall will produce vibrant spring colour in full bloom.. Always remember that animals are forging for food in the Fall. Planting bulbs in the fall, such as daffodils, allium, hyacinths and muscari, will not result in them being eaten by critters. However, they do love to eat tulips and crocuses. Fall is the ideal time to plant your garlic. Organic garlic is touted as the very best and healthiest by professional chefs.
