Multiple cropping is well-adapted for use in growing flowers for either decorative or commercial purposes. By correct choice of species it is possible to have at least one crop flowering in the basins as long as climate will permit. A possible cropping program might run like this: plant Holland bulbs first; several weeks before they are blooming, plant gladioli; several weeks before the gladioli bloom, plant flowers having greater leaf surface, such as marigolds, dahlias, or snap-dragons. Since flowers have a wide range of characteristics, many good combinations can be worked out.
