When I planted my bulbs last fall I mapped out exactly where I put them including exact type and number per grouping...where the map is today however is anyone's guess.

Lesson learned: post it on the blog right away or risk losing it.

With that said I can still document roughly where I planted  just not the exact names and numbers, so hopefully in the spring it will be obvious and I can give an update

North Side Garden
Approx 80 white daffodils, 4 different types in 5 clusters, both early and mid bloomers:

  • Wisely, early bloomer, over sized yellow cup, 16"
  • Professor Einstein, early bloomer, orange cup, 12"
  • Marjorie Hein, mid bloomer, orange trimmed yellow-throated cup, 18"
  • Barrett Browning, mid bloomer, orange cup, 16"

North front window garden

  • 22 Allium for late Spring blooms 
  • 80 mixed Giant Crocus for early Spring colour. 
Get all the details in this earlier post.

Under front spruce
  • 160 Giant Crocus running North-South in a line under the tree (rather than in a circle to contrast with the curvature of the garden).  Remembrance and Pickwick in alternating colour blocks.  
  • 50 early-blooming Iris reticulada, closer to the front path amongst the pieces of the old broken-up concrete sidewalk.

Street tree
40 Giant Crocus around the base of the tree to the right; I want neighbours to be able to enjoy the display as well and I want them to welcome us as we pull into the driveway.

Street shrubs

  • 25 Red Devon, mid bloomer, yellow with orange cup,  16"
  • 25 Orange Progress, early bloomer, yellow with orange cup, 16"

Under back Spruce
50 daffodils in amongst the Bishop's Weed. Shorter in front, taller in back.

  • 25 Jetfire, early bloomer, yellow with orange cup, 10"
  • 25 Pimpernel, mid bloomer, yellow with orange cup, 18"
