Some suggestions needed for a tulip/daffodil bed

15 years ago

Hi e1!

I have two long (14 ft wide by 2 foot deep) raised flower beds in the front against the house using landscape timbers. I just built them this year. So far I only put annuals in it this spring, till I could figure out my garden design for it.

I bought 50 tulip bulbs and 50 daffodil bulbs from White Flower Farm. I bought 25 "lilly" tulips "Corps de Ballet, 25 Apricot Impressions Darwin Hybrid tulips, 25 double daffodils "Campernelle", and 25 "Lemon Glow" daffodils. They arrive in Sept.

I was thinking of dividing them up 50 per flower box, then dividing THAT up to make three groupings of flowers per box. I would plant perrenials around those such as tiarella, maybe miniture hosta, miniture daylillies, etc.

Any suggestions about grouping the bulbs? Any suggestions about what perrenials to plant? I live in NE Ohio zone 5b. I will plant a few annuals next year in there also, such as impatiens.

Thanks in advance.
