Plant Annual Flowers between Bulb Leaves

Would you like to have more color where you planted your spring blooming bulbs such as tulips and daffodils? Now is a good time to plant annual flowers such as alyssum, petunias or impatiens between the leaves. Just dig a hole with a hand trowel and space plants about a foot apart. By the time the old bulb leaves are brown and ready to remove, your annual flowers will be well established and already producing colorful flowers.

Be sure to add some fertilizer when you plant. They will need water every day for a couple of weeks until their roots are established.
