Where to plant bulbous in the garden
Bulbous plants adapt in the garden to different environments and can form varied and unique compositions.
In this article we will present some options to combine different bulbous plants and their best location in the garden.
Bulbous in mixed borders
Bulbous plants can be used on mixed borders, especially with perennial herbaceous plants that have similar demands regarding environmental conditions, although they are also well accompanied by other plants less demanding for nutrients such as shrubs, rose bushes and small conifers. .
The bulbous ones add color to the borders, which can be useful to improve areas that would otherwise be unguarded; With a good choice of successive species, the effect can even last for a long time.
Since the end of winter you can use species such as Crocus, Galanthus, Erythronium, Leucojum; when the other plants develop, it is appropriate to use taller bulbous plants.
Bulbous plants are best exhibited in small groups: if numerous groups of the same species are planted, there is a risk of having the ground uncovered for a long period of the year, while if they are planted in isolation, they will tend to get lost in middle of the other plants.
How to have bulbous flowers all year round
Bulbous in flower beds
The bulbous plants are used in flowerbeds to create bright spots of color, and after flowering they are usually exchanged for other plants. They can be planted alone, often to very good effect, or in conjunction with annuals or perennials, in both formal and improvised designs.
Bulbous plants with different heights can also be used: outdoors, those of medium or low height, such as Tulip Y Hyacinth, and inside, the highest ones, like Canna or Lilium.
Bulbous in rockery
For rockeries, smaller-sized bulbous plants are particularly suitable, such as Anemone, Cyclamen, Muscari, etc.; however, you can also use some taller bulbous plants, such as Tulip, Daffodil, Allium, or Iris, especially in the dwarf varieties.
They should be placed taking into account sun exposure, and their flowering period, trying to achieve a more or less continuous succession.
In general, in this type of production, the drainage is always good, which is highly appreciated by bulbous plants.
The effect obtained is usually very pleasant, since the flowers are often at the same level as the eyes of the casual observer.
A simpler and cheaper alternative to rockery consists of raised beds, which also allow to achieve very good aesthetic results.
