I'm taking a Poll - your opinion please!
Both sides of my front walk are lined with spring bulbs, mostly Hyacinth and Daffodils. Over the past few years I have just casually added new varieties together in clusters. I'm not much into planning for bloom time, color coordination, etc. If I like 'em, I buy 'em, I plant 'em. After they died down, I plant annuals over them, so that's not an issue.
This fall I really need to dig and redistribute the bulbs. The clusters have become a bit lopsided and the bloom-time does need to be a bit better coordinated so I don't have bare spots some places and a sea of blooms in another at the same time. I have photos so I know pretty much where each variety cluster is located. I have already ordered 4 new Daffs for fall delivery, and I need to start thinking about this.
So, I want the opinions of others. I'm undecided whether to
1 - leave the varieties together in clusters, but just rearrange the clusters in a better way,
2 - mix all the bulbs together and just replant so that all the varieties will be mixed together.
What do you think? and why?
