...to be thinking about what bulbs you will plant for Spring flowering. I will be fetching out my big window boxes which have late tulips lying dormant and will feed and water them before placing down my path, topped with forget-me-not and polyanthus plants. I think I might also 'layer' a deep pot for successive flowering - here is a video about doing this:-

Topping the container with a plant like heather is a good idea, to keep squirrels from digging up the bulbs, or to keep cats from thinking it is a new litter tray!

What are other OGGies planning on doing for a Spring display?
