Ecological landscaping means conserving resources, including our own time. Fill every niche and plant a layered landscape so there’s no room for weeds, and you get to enjoy beauty in all seasons. Bulbs that get eaten or wimp out after a year or so aren’t my idea of low-maintenance energy efficient landscaping, so I’ve come to treasure bulbs that last, perennial bulbs that increase over time. Plant these survivors in the right place and enjoy spring flowering bulbs year after year.
