Bulbs in the Garden

It has been two weeks since I made my last post. A lot of bulbs has been planted since then. A few plants has been dug and moved, made a few last minute orders online, a trip to a big box store which has the bulbs I am looking for and a last minute trade/bulb sharing from a very nice fellow lily enthusiast.

For a starter, I dug a clump of L. regales that were growing under a huge tree.

I replaced them with these tulips. The area receives sunlight when the tree has not leaf out yet. Also, in this area is where the newly acquired native plants will be planted.

In between the house and the garage I planted some Scillas, Puschkinias, Iris reticulatas and crocuses Barr's Purple and Dorothy.

I thought I was done planting when I dumped all of the unplanted bulbs in this hole.

As of now, I have 6 lily bulbs (3 Blackberry's Snack, 3 Party Diamond) and 15 Sundisc daffs left to plant. The daffs were given to me for free. (Thanks Linnea!)
And there are about 30 corms and tubers left from a couple of native plants orders.

A clump of Hosta Guacamole has been moved.

A clump of Hosta Plantaginea has been divided.

Tons of sedum Autumn Joy and common hostas has been thrown away. The space is needed for the bulbs.

This pic was taken in my neighborhood last spring. We went to our spring walk and passed by a house with thousands of scillas planted in the garden and in the lawn. I am not exaggerating when I said thousands. They really look nice en masse. Love those little blue flowers!

Your garden is going to look amazing come spring! This has made me want to see if I can find any catalogs that will sell me some last minute bulbs for my area.

I'd also love it if you'd submit your latest lilies and hosta post for the blog carnival I'm hosting. Here's the link if you're interested:

Eliza, thanks for stopping by. Most online bulb sellers are having their sale right now and some of them are sold out. One company I am waiting to have their fall bulb sale is Brent and Becky's Bulbs.

I will check the link and I am interested to submit my latest post. Thanks!
