: I planted about 75 bulbs in front of my curb consisting of daffodils, tulips and hyacinths they are dying back now and don't look so hot. They were beautiful got many compliments on them. Is there anything I can plant in with them that won't harm the bulbs. I have some lirope, blue ficus and pampus grass planted in the corners but once the bulbs are totally gone I will have only those grasses with a huge gap in the middle since the grasses are only on each end of the curb starting at the fence and endind at my mailbox. I really don't want to dig up the bulbs to plant something else. Suggestions appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Stephanie,

Your bulbs are all deeply planted and you can plant anything you like. Many folks plant annuals, but you could plant perennials as well. That way the new foilage will hide the bulb foilage as it dies down.
