Q.Can I plant bulb flowers in fall in a deck container so they bloom next spring.
I have a deck container on my back deck. I hope to plant some flower bulbs like tulips and other like bulb flowers in this container in the fall. If I do will they live?

Yes, spring flowering bulbs, such as Tulips, will want to be planted in Autumn! If any of these are later flowering, then you may want to hold off until spring to plant.
As long as the bulbs that you intend to plant are hardy in your zone, then you will want to plant these in mid to late Fall.
