Colorful focal points for front door

Use containers of flowers to create colorful focal points at your front door. Select pots of different styles and sizes for bulb flowers of different heights and bloom times -- then mix and match. In larger containers, plant a mixture of many bulbs to achieve months of successive bloom. These can be planted in layers, like lasagna, with larger bulbs such as tulips, hyacinths and narcissi about eight inches deep and smaller bulbs such as crocus, snowdrops and grape hyacinths five inches down.
