Make it simple – combine tulips, dwarf daffodils and alliums for a 3 month display of color this spring.
To create an interesting color scheme, mark off different areas with spray chalk prior to planting bulbs.
Be generous with bulb planting – stingy planting won’t give you the show your garden deserves.
Pretreat tulilps with spray detterents such as deer repellents and “Plantskydd.”
To deter critters from eating your bulbs, sprinkle the tulip and crocus beds with cayenne pepper and garlic flakes.
