[/caption]This past fall, my friend Jintina and I layered hundreds of fall bulbs
in our city garden bed. We patiently waited throughout the winter months and once spring came, along with it came a rainbow of beautiful blooms! I captured pictures of as many different blooms as I could (there were new varieties blooming each day) and am happy to report that our layered planting was a gorgeous success!
In October, we planted Triumph Tulip Bulbs Purple Passion Mix
, Wild Crocus Bulbs Minimus
, Grape Hyacinth Bulbs Delft Blue Mix
, Butterfly Daffodils Bulbs Mix
, Triumph Tulips Pretty in Pink Mix

, Double Daffodil Bulbs mix
, Large Cupped Daffodil Bulbs Misty Glen
, Double Late Tulip Bulbs Horizon
, Anemone Blanda Bulbs Mix
, Large Cupped Daffodil Bulbs Flower Record
, Wild About Allium Bulbs Mix
, Single Late Tulip Bulb Mix
, and Dutch Crocus Bulbs Mix
. We added some Bulb Care Fertilizer
in as we planted, gave it a good water afterwards to remove air pockets, and we were done!
A lot of bulbs for a tiny garden, right? We took advantage of the different planting depths of each [caption id="attachment_4681" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Lily Flowered Tulips & Double Late Tulips"]

to learn how to layer fall bulbs in a small space for huge color – There is even a video!
Although some bulbs fell prey to animals such as hungry squirrels, we were overjoyed with the splash of color that was ever-changing throughout the early spring.
