Layered Bulb Planter for Blooms ALL Spring

Wouldn't it be great to have a container planter that keeps going all spring? Well we've got the solution right here with this cool lasagna-style planter completely bursting with blooms. Tulips, daffodils, crocuses and pansies all in one pot!

Layering, or planting “lasagna-style,” is a technique that lets you enjoy successive waves of bloom in a single container by overlapping the bloom times of early, mid and late-blooming spring bulbs. To do this, add a few inches of soil, then layer the tulip bulbs (crowd them in!), add some plant food and then cover them with a few more inches of soil. Now the daffodils get planted, along with more plant food, and then (you guessed it!) a few more inches of soil. Time for crocuses. Finally, after the last layer of soil, top the whole thing off with pansies. Whew, talk about a full pot.

What you need for this:

  • Tulip bulbs
  • Daffodil bulbs
  • Crocus bulbs
  • Pansies plants
  • Soil
  • Plant food
  • A big enough pot!
