The Q&A Archives: making garden multi-seasonal

Question: I am planting daffodil bulbs in a garden. But I wanted to know if I could plant ground cover throughout so that when the bulbs retreat in the winter I would not have bare garden and still have a lovely green garden, possibly with winter-blooming flowers. Thank you, Pam

Answer: Pam,

Yes the bulbs, if they are types that will naturalize in your area and return year after year, can come up through annual flowers or a groundcover. Just take care when working in the bed to plant flowers each year to not damage the bulbs resting underground.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
