Plant Care Tips

Planting Instructions
Plant spring-blooming bulbs in fall, in a location with well-drained soil. Bulbs do best in open areas or with perennials that emerge late, after the bulbs have bloomed. If planting a few bulbs, individual holes are easier. When planting many bulbs in one area, digging one large hole is more efficient. Remove large rocks and break up hard or heavy soil by mixing in compost or other organic matter. As a general rule, bulbs are best planted 2-3 times deeper than they are tall, so for a bulb 2 inches tall, dig a hole 6 inches deep. Refer to planting instructions on the package for more specific details. Place bulbs in the prepared hole with the root side down. A few old roots are usually present to tell you which end is which, otherwise the wider end of the bulb is usually the root side and the pointy end is the top. Cover the bulbs with the soil removed from the hole earlier. Tamp the soil down lightly and water it in. Cover with a couple inches of mulch to help keep the bulbs cool and prevent weeds from sprouting in the bare soil.
General Care Description
Plant bulbs 4-6 inches apart and 6 inches deep into well-draining soil. Prefferablly in a sunny spot to promote vibrant colors in flowers. Remove spent foliage to encourage new growth and strength in bulbs.
