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. 

Haven’t yet begun? Don’t fret. Browse our gallery of 137 images of Bulbs and make your picks. (For a little extra help, see our post, Ask the Expert: All About Bulbs.)

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: Plant now for spring tulips, like these in vibrant magenta from De Boschhoeve nursery in Holland. Learn more about the nursery in Bare Bulbs Never Looked Better and view our gallery of Tulips.

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
