How to Plant Tulips Throughout Your Garden: along pathways, in mixed borders, under trees, and in raised beds

As a follow-up to my my prior posts, "What I've Learned About Growing Tulips in New Jersey," and "The Cutting Garden: the Joy of Spring Tulips," here are more photographs of this year's tulips. Where can and should you plant tulips? As you can see, you can (and I do) plant tulips almost everywhere in all sorts of colors and color combinations: along pathways, in mixed borders, under trees, and in raised beds.
Here are some dark purple tulips that I planted along the front steps.
Here is a mix of multi-colored tulips in the mixed Front Border.
Despite the removal of the old oak tree and stump, some of the orange tulip bulbs I had planted around it actually survived.
Here is a picture of some of the later blooming tulips in the Cutting Garden.

Here is a mix of yellow and purple tulips under the crabapple tree.
Here is a mix of white tulips along the back steps.
This is a close-up of some of those white tulips along the back steps.

lovely post. I just moved into a house that has LOADS of tulips squished into 3 raised beds. Your post has inspired me to start thinking about digging some up and moving them around the yard
