    Default Fall Bulbs to plant in Wisconsin?

    I had a few fall bulbs left over from planting in my yard today and decided to go plant them out by my hives for spring. Now, I want to buy more bulbs to plant now in fall that will benefit my bees a bit in spring. What kind of bulbs can/should I plant now in southern Wisconsin that will look nice in spring and possibly benefit my bees in spring? Thanks, juzzerbee.

    I second Crocus. A good early source of pollen when nothing is else blooming.

    Chionodoxa the pink one. Those bloom super early and the bees cover them. Crocus, snowdrop, winter aconite if you can find it.
