Many gardeners look forward to the fall for the chance to choose new varieties of spring-flowering bulbs. By planting tulips, daffodils and crocuses in various colour combinations in several areas around your garden, you can welcome spring with beautiful bouquets of cut flowers. For flowers all summer long, you can take advantage of spring planting time to plant summer-flowering bulb collections, from tall, stately Asiatic and Oriental lilies to gigantic dinner-plate dahlias to multiflorous gladioli and irises.
If your garden needs a cluster or two of time-tested perennials such as peonies, astilbes, geraniums or asters, consider a garden collection to get varieties that offer different colours, heights, spreads and bloom times rather than planting a single variety. To prevent a garden from becoming a hodge-podge of colour, gardeners often intersperse foliage plants among the flowers. The beautiful foliage of plants such as hostas, ferns and caladiums, also available in garden collections, serve to punctuate the beauty of the flowers around them, and many of these foliage plants thrive in shade.
