Crocuses are one of the first harbingers of spring and one of the most welcome sights in any garden. In The Complete Flower Gardener, the featured section on the crocus is followed by suggestions for other choices (pages 280-281). The book recommends small bulbs such as winter aconite, Spanish bluebells, grape hyacinths and more.
Perhaps it's a shame that these small bulbs tend to be underused, when they give you so much bang for the buck. Have you used any of these small bulbs in your own garden? Which ones are your favorites?

This is a great book to look through before you decide what to plant this summer. If you'd like to discuss the flowers you are considering with the rest of us, don't hesitate to ask!
