Planting Bulbs in a New Garden

My newest garden at the farm will soon be flourishing in a palette of green and white.

Last week, my gardening team planted dozens of young hosta plants in the beds in front of my main greenhouse. They were planted in a more formal grid pattern, framing squares across the entire area. Within the squares, I decided to plant white lilies - about 25 in each, organized by height from back to front. The lilies came from Zabo Plant, a wholesale bulb supplier in The Netherlands. Some of the varieties include: 'Severn', 'Saronno', 'Kayenta', 'Maxima', 'Crystal Blanca', 'Zambesi', 'Nova Zembla', 'Seine', 'Castellani', 'San Christina', 'Serena Madonna', and 'Roselily Angela'. These lilies should bloom mid to late summer - I can’t wait. 

Here are some of the photos from our planting process - enjoy.
