How to get summer plants out and spring bulbs in and vice versa
i have a space problem that I need a little help with!
so I have a main border that is filled full with dahlias and chrysanthemums along with a few annuals. there is no room left. So now I'm trying to think about my winter and spring bulbs and how to fill the bed for spring. So all the research I can find says to plant bulbs in autumn and then leave the bulbs in the ground - how do I do that if my other plants don't get lifted until end of October into November? Then after last frost I put my dahlias back out so can I lift all the bulbs and plant summer flowers again next year?
im very confused as to how I can make it so the bed is not bare apart from the deep winter?
i do have a greenhouse so should I start my bulbs off in pots then plant outside in November? Would this even work?
at the end of the spring season how do I lift bulbs without cutting the foliage off to early?
any advice on tips?
