Erin, one of our certified Master Gardeners, purchased a house several years ago and has been wowing us with her plantings since.

After a summer full of beautiful Dahlias, they decided to dig them up to save the tubers for the next year. They then had an empty garden bed, so they decided to plant the Darwin Tulip Mix and the Large Cupped Daffodil Mix. They were trying to  create the same dramatic, colorful look they had experienced with their summer Dahlia planting.

They removed the top few inches of soil and laid out the Tulips and Daffodils. They planted nine tulips per sq foot and six daffodils per sq foot, alternating them so they’d all be mixed together. After all was said and done, they planted over 350 bulbs. Once the weather started to warm up, the Tulips and Daffodils started popping up. The entire family was impressed by the display they created.

    Very Nice.

    I never thought of that way to plant bulbs. Much easier than one at a time!!
