Cem9165's blog: Bulb planting fall of 2016

Posted on Nov 26, 2016 10:49 PM

Fall 2016- 1400 tulips and 200 hyacinths to be planted. I want a shades of pink and yellow theme with the bulbs this year, with a prolonged bloom season.

I planted 4 flats of pansies (18 plants per flat) between the 2 end walkway beds with 190 tulips:
100 Dordogne
30 Design Impression
30 Pink Impression
30 Ollioules tulips
1400-190=1210 tulips left to plant, along with 200 hyacinths😱!

Street bed planted with euphorbia- 10 Ascot Rainbow in the back of the bed, pansies and 88 tulips, after it was amended with Black Kow composted manure, soil conditioner, and bulb food:
50 pansies
20 Dordgone tulips in center
38 El Niño - bulbs were very large
30 Temples Favorite
1210-88= 1,122 tulips left to plant + 200 hyacinths🙄

I found many of the Tequila Sunrise Hyacinth mix that was planted in fall 2015, but none of the tulips Flaming Jewel or Ollioules.
