2. How do I plant them?
Loosen the soil and dig a hole with a trowel. The hole needs to be around three times as deep as the depth of the bulb. Place the bulb in the hole by pushing and twisting bulb downwards (make sure it’s the right way up!) and then fill the hole with previously removed soil. Add some bulb fibre or fresh compost to create some fertile soil for the roots.
3. How do I know which way to plant bulbs?
Flower bulbs should have a pointy tip, this pointy bit needs to face upwards. If it’s not obvious which way to plant, then plant the bulb sideways as the stems will find their way to the surface.
4. How far apart should I plant my bulbs?
Plant bulbs three times the diameter apart, and three times the height deep. For example, a 5cm in diameter bulb should be planted 15cm away from the next one.
