So last fall, I wrote about different Creative ways to plant bulbs and then I experimented with the “Lasagna planting“. Now that spring is ending here in SE Wisconsin, I will post my photos and comments on the ‘Lasagna’ progression.
I do remember getting a little carried away with how many different bulbs I planted in such a small place. 🙁 Here is the list of what I planted in layers: Galanthus, Thalia Daffodils, Van Eiyk, Ollioules, and Daydream Tulips, Plumosum & Fantasy Creation Muscari, Shubertii Allium, and Dutch Iris.
These are the Van Eijk, Ollioules and Daydream tulips, and Fantasy Creation Muscari, showing the first color. The Fantasy Muscari looked like regular muscari, but grew puffier as the weeks went on. At first, I wondered why Daydream were looking so yellow. But they gradually turned apricot to orange! So cool!
The Thalia daffodils were a bit short and were hiding in between the tulips. The white color stood out though.
Now that it is the middle of May, I notice the Allium spikes shooting up between the tulip leaves. I am very interested to see Shuberti Allium, because I have never grown them before!
