Bulbs are energy powerhouses that bloom year after year. They store their energy over the winter, before bursting to life in spring. You can’t go wrong with bulbs, but there are a few things to bear in mind to help them grow their best.
Between September and November get started by choosing a sunny spot with well-drained soil. They don’t appreciate wet and poorly-drained sites because it causes the bulb to rot. When planting, dig a hole that is two to three times the depth of the bulb itself, then line the bottom of the hole with grit or sand.
