Post bulbs - for each season
Hi there - just wondering if anyone has planned a garden based on bulbs for different seasons. I was thinking how to do this for mass plantings and how it would work. Still trying to get mass bright colour for each season in the garden in a low maintenance, low water situation :scratch

Haven't done it personally but would get a catalogue such as diggers or a specialist bulb supplier (forgotten the name of the one I've seen in the past. Keep thinking floriade but maybe someone else can help?) to find out what you can grow in the different seasons. The other thing is to look at what other people in your region are growing and if you are bold - knock on their door and ask. Many keen gardeners will not only tell you what it is but give you some as well. (I do and have had others give to me also).
Know you have been working on this for a while so I hope some works out for you soon :sunny

yes, am looking at the garden express catalogue now.

Thanks Homegroan for your words of support. I have been at it for a while now. I did put in 5 spider variety chrysanthemums and then 20 pom pom varieties last October. I managed to get the spider ones from show growers who were getting rid of that seasons. So far all of these are powering so I am keen to see the blooms. And I hope they like our frost.

Maybe one day I can post some nice pictures when I get it together.

Frost? What's that? Most of my garden that survives lives under deciduous shade. Check out Perth forecast for this week and you'll see why :roll:
Great score with the chrysanthemums :thumbright
Look forward to seeing some photos of all your lovely flowers - soon.

No thanks! Have done two winters in England so feel as I've done my penance! I'll think of Canberra winters when I open the chest freezer next. Perth is about all I can handle now as far as the cold gets.
