Tulips, Daffodils, Crocus, and more bring unparalleled color and cheer to the spring garden each year. They are part of that first group of blooms to wake up and flower after the winter, and are often welcomed with big smiles and cheers after winter. And as we start to plan our fall planting of these easy-to-grow bulbs, a big question pops into our minds: how many bulbs do I need?
Whether you’re adding spring color to containers in a city garden, or want to plant bulbs to fill in your yard with color, the first step in your design is to figure out how many bulbs you’ll need. For projects of any size, see our recommended bulbs per square foot. We’ve also put together examples of some of small and large fall bulb planting scenarios, complete with how many bulbs you’ll need to create each look. Plus, we offer tips on how to make a big spring statement in your garden - on a budget!
If you're looking for a big statement with few bulbs, containers are a great choice. You can also move them easily to fit your garden style for the season.
One of the most attractive things about Fall-Planted Bulbs for small gardens is that they take up such little space. If you're working with a tiny city garden, Fall-Planted Bulbs are an easy way to add big, bold color to the spring garden. They can be planted among your favorite perennials or wildflowers with ease, making it easy to pack in season-long color in a small garden bed.
How many bulbs can a 4'x6' garden bed hold? (4' x 6' = 24 square feet)
As you can see, a small garden space can pack a lot of punch with Spring-Blooming Bulbs. Try mixing a variety of bulbs together for a display all spring long, including early Crocus, mid-season Daffodils and Tulips, and late season Allium.

A lot of gardeners like to get creative with their spring-blooming bulbs, and a popular way to do this is to create a bulb spiral. Our co-workers Hazen and Mary took the spiral idea and shifted it a little. They created a bulb yin yang with 250 Tulip Bulbs, planting half one variety and half the other.
Although the bed created a colorful statement in the spring, their yin yang didn’t come out quite as planned. They chose two different varieties of Tulips that didn't bloom at the same time (one was earlier than the other). Also, one side of the yin yang was planted on a slope, so the bulbs planted in that section were much shorter than the rest. Next time, Hazen and Mary say they'll choose the same Tulip variety in two different colors and make sure to level out the area before they plant.
Create a big splash of color across the entire front of your property. Add curb appeal and brighten up your yard! Trench planting is an easy way to plant a whopping 750 Tulip Bulbs in the fall. Come spring, the colorful blooms welcome guests and passerbys with a cheerful display. When planting a very large number of bulbs, we highly recommend choosing varieties that will bloom in succession, to make the flowers last throughout the season.
Trench Planting is a quick, efficent method for planting lots of bulbs!
