How do I plant the flower bulbs?
Plant the flower bulbs outdoors, in a nice flower pot or a spacious planter as soon as possible after receipt. Flower bulbs grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a shady, semi-shady or sunny spot. Put the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulb - so a 5 cm bulb should be planted in a 15 cm hole. The planting distance for small bulbs is about 5-8 cm and 10-15 cm for large ones. You can plant the bulbs one by one with the help of a small spade or a special bulb planter. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down.
How do I plant the flower bulbs outdoors?
Choose a place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well. Plant in groups of at least six bulbs or divide about 25 to 50 bulbs across the border or flowerbed at a regular distance. The more flower bulbs you plant in the group, the more colourful the result in your garden will be when the flowers bloom. Plant the bulbs as described above. Fill up the planting hole and don't walk on the freshly planted area. For bigger surfaces, you create a larger planting hole in which you put a number of bulbs. Water immediately.
Planting mixed flower bulbs in a flowerbed
Another way to plant flower bulbs is to mix several kinds and scatter them in a flowerbed. Each bulb must then be planted right where it landed. Feel free to use flower bulbs that differ in shape and flowering period! This extends the flowering period, so your flowerbed will look nice much longer.
