Margie demonstrated that by using different layers of bulbs in a pot you can have color that lasts all spring! She used tulips, hyacinth and crocus in 3 different layers. When the warm days of spring arrive she will have these bulbs blooming at different times and will have waves of color for months.
You can even put bulbs in your late summer containers to freshen them up quite a bit too. But always remember to start with a quality potting soil, like Black Gold, to give your bulbs the best chance at success!
