    Could anyone suggest what would look good planted with grape hyacinths in a trough? Thinking some other bulbs?

    Crocus come to mind. Do you want extended bloom or will you be satisfied with a springtime show?

    If you want to extend your season, I recommend bluebells (preferably English)

    To extend interest, you can have camassia quamarsh

    Some big hyacinths, some iris paniculata
