I usually just have some daffodils in a container, and they have been good in blooming year after year, though I had to move them since the succulents where crowding them and the daffodil bulbs have multiplied too. So last fall I took a chance and also got some tulip, camassia and muscari bulbs. I was able to plant the muscari bulbs during the fall season, but I got a bit late with the daffodils, tulip and camassia, got around to putting them in their containers in January. I thought it will be a rainy winter, but it has been drier than usual. It is nice to see the bulbs starting to awaken now, especially after a much needed rain. Will update this thread as the growth continues....

Daffodils starting to wake up:

Camassia also poking:

Muscari waking up further, it did start to awaken a week after planting in late Fall, but slowed down as it got colder..now I forgot what I planted with it, I guess some of the tulips, I know I got lots of them so I was able to plant some ahead, and the others I delayed planting in January.

Nothing showing on this batch of tulips planted in January:

My bulbs are all in ground but I also love it when I see them start to poke out of the ground in spring. Means the flower show will be so pretty.

Still thinking about it...my problem is once the city trees are in full leaf mode, my garden will be more shade in summer.
