Displays of spring-flowering bulbs are an excellent way to highlight dark areas of the garden with brilliant color and create stunning focal points. The diversity of  available bulbs guarantees something for every landscape situation, from formal display beds to naturalized mixed borders. This class will teach you effective ways to successfully combine plants to create vibrant designs that are visually stunning and will wow your neighbors and friends.
