Plant annual flowers between bulbs

Did you enjoy the color provided by your spring bulbs such as daffodils and tulips? You can continue to have color in those same beds by planting annual flowers between the bulb leaves. You don’t have to wait until the bulb leaves turn brown. You can plant almost any annual flower such as petunia, alyssum, lobelia, marigold, impatiens and begonia.

The bulbs will gradually go dormant after producing a new bulb for next year. You can pull out the bulb leaves as soon as they are mostly brown. The bulbs will come up next spring the same as usual.
