To create a wonderful kaleidoscope of colour that can last from July to October choose a range of early, mid and late flowering bulb varieties. Generally most types of bulbs, Tulips, Daffodils, Dutch Iris, Hyacinths etc. will have flowering varieties that come into these categories. With Tulips you can also plant chilled and unchilled bulbs together. The advantage of doing this is that you can have ongoing colour for a longer time in your beds as there is approximately two weeks difference in flowering time between chilled and unchilled bulbs, however, unchilled bulbs will not grow as tall as chilled, approximately half their listed height.
