Add a burst of color to your porch or patio with crocus, tulips or lilies potted in containers. Once the blooms have faded, replace them with your favorite annuals for constant color throughout the seasons.
Want to force bulbs indoors? Look for flower bulb varieties labeled "good for forcing" to ensure success.

Paperwhites, freesia and amaryllis bulbs are easy to grow -- no chilling required. Although their bloom time is only a few weeks, their flowers are magnificent and are sure to add cheer to any room.
Most of us think of spring bloomers when we plan a bulb garden. However, many bulbs flower in the summer -- or, can be forced into bloom indoors in winter.
