Continuous blooms in the garden is a goal everyone shares.  The best way to do that is with perennials.  Plants that return year after year. Material that will spread for impact but graciously give way for the next blooming series.  What can I say about perennials?  It is what gardening is all about.

One of my first investments as a gardener was in 1,000 daffodil bulbs 15 years ago.  An investment that blooms the most glorious dividends each spring with multiple splits and divisions yearly.  I remain a steadfast fan of bulbs, tubers, rhizomes and corms.

General information: buy bulbs, rhizomes, corms or tubers at the start of the season.  Pick healthy, firm specimens; the bigger the bulb, the bigger the flower.  Plant spring flowering bulbs mid-September to mid-October depending on your zone.  I have planted as late as mid-November.  When planting do not use Bulb Booster directly on the bulb, rather the soil above or below.  Make sure the bulb bottom is in contact with the soil and at the recommended depth.  For best effect always plant bulbs in groups, not rows.  Try overplanting large bulbs with minor ones for a continuous show.
