Look for bulbs that bloom at different times. Start with the early flowering plants like blue crocus, pink chionodoxa, or yellow winter buttercups. In mid-spring, you can get blooms from tulips which are available in multitudes of colors, daffodils, and fritillaria. In the late spring plant alliums and dutch iris flowers. Your garden will be in color bliss.
A garden trend in the last few years is getting back to nature and having a more natural-looking garden. Nature is important to people because it provides us with a sense of peace and tranquility. A way to achieve this look in your garden is by mixing different types of flower bulbs in an unplanned way. Whether it is camassia, daffodils, hyacinths, or other spring flower bulbs plant them wherever you want. Using this technique will provide you with a blast of color in the spring.
If you are someone who likes your garden to be orderly and well-maintained, with a specific design and color select flower bulbs; in a single color that you enjoy. You can choose a particular type of flower, such as a hyacinth. You can also pick different types of flowers such as daffodils, muscari, and tulips, and plant them in the same color. You can group them in a border or flower bed in a repetitive pattern that produces a structured result. This creates a striking feel in your garden.
