Last fall I planted some tulip bulbs where I forgot I had some hyacinths planted. The hyacinths became scattered. I am going to move those hyacinths together again into one group.
I have also created new beds for bulbs by removing some lawn in front of shrubs. Bulbs are beautiful in front of a green background.
If you are planning to divide or move more than one variety or color of bulbs, you may want to make a map as they bloom. Or you could place stakes with color or name on the stake.
One year I dug three different color tulip bulbs that had been planted separately. Because I couldn’t remember which color was planted where, I ended up with mixed colors in the new beds.
You can also mix spring flowering and summer flowering bulbs in the same area for extended bloom. Now is a good time to plant most summer flowering bulbs.
I usually start my begonias and dahlias inside in containers so I can give them a faster start. Other bulbs like gladiolus and lilies can be planted directly outside.
