New Website Explores How Garden Designers
Pair Spring Bulbs with Perennials

Choosing which tulips, daffodils and other spring bulbs to plant in fall is fun. And planting those bulbs couldn't be easier: dig a hole, plant some bulbs. But for those who desire spring bulb and perennial partnerships that deliver high performance in spring, then transition gracefully into early summer, things can get more challenging.

About the Project

Bulb Design Notes is a small website that offers gardeners a useful glimpse inside the design process of three talented designers known for their mixes of spring bulbs, perennials and flowering trees and shrubs. The site explores the practical choices that go into creating successful plant partnerships. The collaborative project was developed by Colorblends, a flower bulb supplier known for seriously-stylish tulip and daffodil blends.

The participating designers are:

  • Jacqueline van der Kloet, garden designer and plant specialist, Weesp, the Netherlands
  • Janie McCabe, residential garden designer, Northford, Connecticut
  • Mark Konlock, landscape designer and director of horticulture at Green Bay Botanical Garden, Green Bay, Wisconsin
