Now that it is fall, it is time to plant your spring bulbs. And what better place to add spring bulbs than in your daylily beds? Be sure to add some bulbs in and around your daylily gardens.

Thanks. By adding the spring bulbs among the daylilies it gives me two seasons of bloom from the same space.

I always enjoy looking at pictures of your gardens Rita. These are so pretty! Thanks for the reminder to plant the spring bulbs. I had forgotten to look for some.

These days I buy my bulbs on line. Brent& Beckies, Scheepers and Colorblends are all popular places for me to buy.

Your gardens are beautiful & colorful! I always look forward to seeing pics of your gardens and flowers! Lovey dubby Thumbs up

Wish I had your energy! Blinking I can't believe how many Tulips you plant every Fall! Blinking I'm not counting the Darwins that do come back.

How deep do you plant your Tulips (not the shorties)?

How far apart do you space them (not the shorties)?

I'm thinking about getting some Darwins from Brent and Becky's. I already have some 'Couleur Cardinal' coming from Old House Gardens.

Thanks!

Depends. I plant my Greigii and Kaufmannianas about 6 inches but I plant the others, like the Darwins, triumphs, single early at about 8 inches and then I plant the Emperors 10 inches deep. I plant them close together. So about one bulb space apart. Like in a row a bulb, a space the size of the bulbs, next bulb. And multiple rows in a grid like that also. I put them close together.

What about the Daffs that you plant? How deep and how far apart do you do it?

Humm, daffs. 6-8 inches deep. Nicely sized bulbs I like to have 8 inches deep. Sometimes close together. Same as the tulips. But other places I just set them the way I think they will look good and plant. No exact rule on daffs.
