One Pot Display

by CountryLife Gardening | Sep 18, 2015

If you are working with limited space there is still a lot you can do with bulbs. One great thing to do is buy a large pot and layer bulbs in it for a continuous display of flowers. When planting your bulbs like this you want to think about the size of the bulbs and when the flower will bloom. When I have done this before I have planted my daffodils first at the very bottom. Then I followed  with tulips, then some dwarf daffodils and finally crocuses at the very top. I found that this gave a great display that lasted well into May.
