How to Get more color in the garden
Danny Lipford shows how to grow a more colorful flower garden in early spring when there is not a lot of overall growth. He displays how he plants tulips and daffodils in the fall so that they bloom in the spring. He digs a troth about 6 feet long and 6 inches deep. After sprinkling bulb food in the troth, Lipford plants the tulip and daffodil bulbs, arranging them so each uniquely appears every other bulb. Lipford's assistant advises that he re-plants the tulips every year, since while they do grow back in following years, they do not grow back as full or last as long. The daffodils, however, will grow back in full so long as he allows the foliage to completely die before clipping it. This is because the foliage is feeding the bulb for the next year as it dies.
