This answered a lot of questions I have had about my bulbs and saved me doing a lot of research before deciding what to do with the vast plantings I have! Thanks so much for the specific and very clear info!

This article is wonderful and has given me exactly what I needed to know. I was planning on investing in a lot of bulbs this fall. Now I know what I am doing. Thanks.

My favorite way of tying up daffodils is to twist the leaves and double them up on themselves. A rubber band over the group gives you enough room to start planting your annuals. I've done this for 25 years and here is a picture of them from this spring. They line the walkway to my side door. The only other thing I would like to say is that your listings of spring bulbs did not include King Alfred daffodils and Greigi tulips which are strongly long lasting.

bozley- Nothing better than years of experience to tell us what works. Your picture proves it.
and thanks for the recommendations for varieties. I even have a few Greigii tulips in my yard, which have bloomed for several years.
