Even though the weather is cooling down, there's still plenty you can do to get your garden ready for spring. Autumn is the perfect time to plant some bulbs. Let them winter, and come spring they will sprout on their own, without you having to lift a finger. Image from wwarby.
Planting flower bulbs, like crocuses, daffodils and hyacinth, now gives them time to establish roots before sprouting once warm weather returns. Pick the flowers you want, dig holes for each bulb, add fertiliser and water and walk away: Your flowers are set for spring, and when the warm weather comes back, they will take care of themselves.
If you don't have a garden space, or want to brighten up a deck or patio, you can layer your bulbs in a container. Choose several types of flowers that bloom a few weeks apart so you always have some to enjoy. For detailed instructions on how to best layer the bulbs, hit the link below.
