Update: Planting Fall Bulbs in our City Garden
Lily Flowered Tulips, Grape Hyacinths & Double Late Tulips
This past fall, my friend Jintina and I layered hundreds of fall bulbs
in our city garden bed. We patiently waited throughout the winter months and once spring came, along with it came a rainbow of beautiful blooms! I captured pictures of as many different blooms as I could (there were new varieties blooming each day) and am happy to report that our layered planting was a gorgeous success!
In October, we planted Triumph Tulip Bulbs Purple Passion Mix, Wild Crocus Bulbs Minimus, Grape Hyacinth Bulbs Delft Blue Mix, Butterfly Daffodils Bulbs Mix, Triumph Tulips Pretty in Pink Mix

. We added some Bulb Care Fertilizer
in as we planted, gave it a good water afterwards to remove air pockets, and we were done!
A lot of bulbs for a tiny garden, right? We took advantage of the different planting depths of each

variety of bulbs and did a вЂњlasagna planting.вЂќ Read my blog вЂњPlanting Fall Bulbs in Our City GardenвЂќ
to learn how to layer fall bulbs in a small space for huge color вЂ“ There is even a video!
Although some bulbs fell prey to animals such as hungry squirrels, we were overjoyed with the splash of color that was ever-changing throughout the early spring.
