Planting Bulbs


My tulips and daffodils are so lovely right now that I would like to plant more in the fall for next spring. How can I identify the current bulbs so I don’t dig them up when I plant the new bulbs.


Thank you for your question.

I am in the same situation. Next year, I want more of a show with my blooms. The very best way to remember where your bulbs are planted is to take photos now and as your bulbs continue. Save your photos in a file you will remember.

In the fall you will know what to purchase from the nurseries and where to plant them. You can plan at that time for early, middle, and late spring bloom. In terms of a show, it’s best to make large groups of your bulbs. One tulip or one daffodil will look lonely, but twelve will look splendid.
