We just had a very pleasant experience with an on-line nursery. They sent 39 varies bulbs (grape hyacinths, Dutch Iris, Bouquet Tulips and Snow Crocus) as a Bonus in additon to our order.
Anyway, I prepared a spot behind a cinder block wall that is about 4' off the ground with about 18" of topsoil and a compost compound mixed in - on Sunday. It sits on about 4' of limestone as a french drain. I want the soil to freeze and thaw and settle before planting the bulbs - though I am not complaining about the mid-70's we had today.
Anyway, my question is, will these bulbs cohabitate and live happily ever after without encroaching on each other - and how far do I space them or can I just do like clusters according to how tall they get?
I'm not creating like a Mini-Middle East am I? (That is pre-election humor folks!)
