Do you remove the bulbs when you plant the vegies or plant around?

We plant the bulbs for the spring and then remove them after they flower to make room for the veggie garden. Hope that helps!

Very nice but what comes up next? Tulips and grape hyacinth only last - What details do you require? I'm asking you a question.

Give your pinks a little depth by mixing them with a deeper coral.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to 10 Beautiful Ways to Landscape With Bulbs
10. Edge the garden. Use smaller bulbs like grape hyacinth or scilla as a colorful border to frame a more formal bulb garden or the early-season greens in a vegetable plot. Here, raised beds of pink and coral tulips are accentuated by grape hyacinth. Though a planting like this is stunning, you'll need to remove the bulbs after they bloom or add enough perennials or annuals to provide interest until the foliage naturally dies.More: 6 Unsung Bulbs for Fall Planting
Marianne Lipanovich added this to 12 Classic Bulbs for Spring Blooms
Landscaping ideas. Before you plant, it’s a good idea to think of the final look you want. A formal and somewhat traditional look is garden beds. The upright growth and intense colors give the beds a tidy look, and massing the bulbs together highlights the colors. Smaller bulbs, such as crocuses and hyacinths, work well along the edges of beds, in rock gardens and around the perimeters of ponds and creeks. The one drawback of including bulbs in a formal space is that if you’re planning to treat the bulbs as perennials, you’ll need other plants in the same area that will fill in when the bulbs die back, while masking the yellowing foliage until it’s time to remove the leaves.

Spring bulbs are amazing. One small, brown, often misshapen package contains everything needed to produce roots, leaves and a beautiful flower (or flowers). Bulbs are easy to grow, have relatively few pests and diseases, can go in the ground or into a container, and can even stay in the house. They work well with almost any garden style and pretty much herald the arrival of warm weather. There’s just one thing about bulbs that keeps them from being the perfect no-fuss plant: You have to plant them at just the right time. Come spring you may find potted containers full of blooms, but you won’t be able to find flats of bulbs to put into the garden for a spot of color. To have a spring bulb garden, you have to plant in the fall. Fortunately there are plenty of reminders at this time of year. Nurseries are filled with bins of bulbs, along with bulb fertilizer (growers are mixed on whether you need to add fertilizers when you first plant or simply need to fertilizer in succeeding years). If your garden center doesn’t have the flowers or even the colors you want, there are plenty of online choices; one of my favorites is Brent & Becky’s Bulbs. More: 6 Unsung Bulbs for Fall Planting Traditional Landscape by Conte & Conte, LLC Conte & Conte, LLC SaveEmail Landscaping ideas. Before you plant, it’s a good idea to think of the final look you want. A formal and somewhat traditional look is garden beds. The upright growth and intense colors give the beds a tidy look, and massing the bulbs together highlights the colors. Smaller bulbs, such as crocuses and hyacinths, work well along the edges of beds, in rock gardens and around the perimeters of ponds and creeks. The one drawback of including bulbs in a formal space is that if you’re planning to treat the bulbs as perennials, you’ll need other plants in the same area that will fill in when the bulbs die back, while masking the yellowing foliage until it’s time to remove the leaves.
