Anyone got any good ideas what to plant to come up after tulips?

I have a bed to plant up but if I plant daffs and tulips that should see me from feb through May can I plant summer numbs in at the same time or is it best to have a perennial in the same space?

I planted seeds this year and got a nice display. If I leave them will they develop tubers and display next year?

My neighbour told me this is a weed but I let it grow to see what it might turn into?  Any Ideas,

I thought it would be nice to start a thread on bargains on the high street.

I recently got evergreen 2in1 complete 100sqm for £2.57 at tesco reduced from £12. Although you can get online from £8.99.

Its the april-september one so use it now or store to next year I got 4 packs at that price!

Problem with that is that I find they need cleaning once of maybe twice a year depending on where they are collecting from. That would require you to strip all the ivy off to empty them out.

Maybe build a frame around them with a planter on top?

What I need is a filter to stop them filling with gunk.

Lol I often wonder the same thing! My garden is about 3/4 of an acre. I have an allotment several fruit trees a large lawn and a multitude of shrubs and beds. I have been cutting back a lot over the last year or so and am planning a complete redesign to keep maintenance down in the long term.
