The floriferous lawn

These days, you’re likely to find more than just grass growing in many Canadian lawns. Beautiful spring flower bulbs create a floriferous lawn.

Recommended flower bulbs

I reached out to bulbs companies to find out what they think is new and exciting this season, and they gave me a lot of options for flower bulbs.

Flowers in a cold season

A cool, bright northwest exposure provides light on three sides for flowering winter plants. Pots of forced tulips and hyacinths are happy. Blooms last longer in the cool window.

'Yellow Apeldoorn' tulips are reliable rebloomers.

It’s tulip time

May is prime time for tulips, and perhaps you have some thick stands of stems with buds beginning to turn colour.
