Tulip and Daffodil Bulbs

As the temperatures drop, the time for bulb planting begins.  We have around 7000 bulbs we are planting this year and that will make for quite a show.  We had an eagle scout project help with planting 1500 bulbs along the north fence wall.  The bulbs we are planting are tulips, daffodils, crocus, and hyacinth.  Most of those are tulips, after they bloom, are ripped out and composted. Daffodils on the other hand, are perennials and can remain on the property as long as you don't dig them up.  They also multiply and get bigger and stronger every year.  A little tip on planting: we use augers and drills to install the bulbs and plant them 4-6 inches from each other to create a immense mass of color.
