Spacing of crocus in lawn
I am a new homeowner, and a new in-the-ground gardener (my previous gardening has all been in containers).
This fall, i'm planting crocus in my lawn. I have a patch of lawn that is about 200 square feet, with a walkway along one side and the neighbor's lawn on the other. There are a few shurbs against the house, but that's all that is in the front yard.
I have puchased 80 bulbs (mostly purples, some white, some yellow). But I can't figure out what the best spacing for the bulbs is -- I don't want to make a design, but I don't want them to be so spaced out that they look stragely, and I don't want them to spread over into the neighbor's lawn.
The options as I see them are: a) cluster the bulbs along my walkway, or b) spread them all over the lawn, but keep a healthy margin (a foot?) from the neighbor's lawn.
Which of these will look better with this number of bulbs? Do you have any other suggestions for how to space them?
