    Does anyone have suggstions for locating established bulbs in a mixed planting bed? One of my clients has perennials, annuals and bulbs all planted in the same general area under some oak trees. I hate digging up bulbs already in the ground when I'm planting annuals or adding more bulbs . Or worse, unearthing half a bulb.

    I have always gone low tech, small sticks that are just barely above the mulch level marks my bulbs.I know this isn't much help now.Sonicgram would be very cool.

    Thanks, Steve. Good idea for future plantings. And unearthed bulbs come spring.
