Where To Plant Spring Bulbs

By goldfinch4
September 30, 2011

Many spring blooming bulbs can be planted under deciduous trees and shrubs. They will bloom before the branches fill out with leaves, which will give you a pretty view earlier.

I have a front lawn filled with thousands of crocus, Siberian squill, snowdrops, Chionadoxas, and more. I wait a bit longer to do the first mowing of the season, but it's worth it.

I have native Fawn Lilies growing under my apple trees. Also have daffodils under the Mimosa tree.

Chris, now that you've reminded me about this I will have to get busy and plant some of the bulbs Kate listed above. Thumbs up

Kate, your lawn must be absolutely beautiful in the spring!

I'm planting tulips, hyacinths and crocus in my flower beds because the lawn is off limits to me right now pout. Anyone have suggestions of what I can sow over the bulbs for later blooms after they die down?

Mindy, not sure what does good in your zone, but any perennials that will grow tall enough to hide the dying foliage of the bulbs should work.

Thanks Ann!

Maridell, that should really be pretty! What colors did you get?

Thanks Chris. I have some in the one bed but the other is open and planted full of bulbs so I'm looking into sowing seeds now or in spring to hide them in that bed.

The new bulbs are about 2 weeks behind some older bulbs in the front yard.

We are loving the weather!
