In case you hadn't noticed, we're all about bulbs this week. All of us at Gardenista are planning our gardens six months ahead, carefully choosing our tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils for next spring.
Here, some inspiration from our Gallery:
Above: Bulb expert Scott Kunst of Old House Gardens in Michigan shares some advice with Michelle in Ask the Expert: All About Bulbs. As a result of their conversation, she chose the daffodil Erlicheer shown here. For more inspiration en blanc, see our gallery of All Things White.
Above: Think beyond daffodils and tulips when dreaming up your bulbous garden. For help, see 5 Quick Fixes: Essential Garden Bulbs. Here, Allium 'Globemaster' has us thinking about adding more Purple in the Garden.
Above: These supermarket-sourced ranunculus make a sophisticated centerpiece in frosted glass vases. (For steps, see DIY: Easy Ranunculus Bouquet.) Imagine how pleasing they'd be when plucked from your own spring garden. For more ideas, see our gallery of Floral Arrangements.
Above: Lilies at Sissinghurst Castle in England are part of a garden designed by a loving and nontraditional husband and wife; learn more in His and Hers, Harold and Vita. As with all things from The English Gardener, Sissinghurst has us thinking of Brit Style in the Garden.
