Get your bulbs in time for color growth

Set aside an area for flowering bulbs. First you plant a little bit of the daffodils, things like Crocus puschkinia, kiona datsa, the very early bloomers. Then you get into the daffodils, which are coming into March. Then the tulips, once you are in to April. Then you've got this green goddess and the white calalillies into May and June and peonies are usually, by the end of Spring, blooming into June. So, if you have a garden and you can set aside an area just for blooming bulbs, you can have a succession of color from February through June
