Be creative mix bulbs in with your perennials. This fall garden looks great summer through fall. Adding tulips or hyacinths can lengthen our season of enjoyment.
Plant bulbs 2 to 3 times their vertical height deep. Try mixing several bulbs together to double your enjoyment. I like mixing yellow daffodils with blue squills for a rich combination. Or how about some early blooming crocus mixed with some late blooming tulips.
Or maybe you prefer to mix in a few pansies. Cold weather pansies like Icicle, Second Season and Sub-zero will make it through even the coldest winters.
Mix a little slow release or bulb booster fertilizer in the soil above the bulbs. Water and wait for spring.
