Gorgeous Inspiration for Your Spring Bulb Garden

Gorgeous Inspiration for Your Spring Bulb Garden

At Gardenista, we’re all about bulbs right. We are planning our gardens six months ahead, carefully choosing our tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils for next spring.

Haven’t yet begun? Don’t fret. Browse our gallery of 137 images of Bulbs and make your picks. (For a little extra help, see our post, Ask the Expert: All About Bulbs.)

Here, some inspiration from the Gardenista Gallery.

Above: Think beyond daffodils and tulips when dreaming up your bulbous garden. For help, see 5 Quick Fixes: Essential Garden Bulbs. Here, Allium ‘Globemaster’ has us thinking about adding more Purple in the Garden.

Above: Bulb expert Scott Kunst of Old House Gardens in Michigan shares some advice with Gardenista editor Michelle in Ask the Expert: All About Bulbs. As a result of their conversation, she chose the daffodil Erlicheer shown here. For more inspiration en blanc, see our gallery of All Things White.

Above: These supermarket-sourced ranunculus make a sophisticated centerpiece in frosted glass vases. (For steps, see DIY: Easy Ranunculus Bouquet.) Imagine how pleasing they’d be when plucked from your own spring garden. For more ideas, see our gallery of Floral Arrangements.
