Planting

What do I need?
  • Small spade or bulb planter
  • Watering can
  • Fresh potting soil and hydro grains (for pots or planters)

How do I plant the flower bulbs?
It’s best to plant the flower bulbs as soon as possible after receipt. Plant it directly into the ground, in a flower pot or in a spacious planter. The flower bulb grows best in loose, well-drained soil. A sheltered spot in the sun, semi-shade or in the shadow will do just fine.

The flower bulb should be planted at a depth of 3 times the height of the bulb. For instance, if the bulb is 5 cm high it should be planted at a depth of 15 cm. The distance between small bulbs is 5 - 8 cm and 10 - 15 cm between larger ones.

Planting can be done in spring as well as in autumn. Use a small spade or a special bulb planter for planting. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down. When planted outdoors, flower bulbs are often frost hardy. Cover them with leaves just to be on the safe side.

Planting the flower bulbs in the garden
Find a suitable place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well and divide the flower bulbs across the surface. That can be done in groups of 6 or spread out evenly. Plant the bulb as indicated above, water immediately, and don't walk on the freshly planted area.

How do I plant the flower bulbs in a pot or planter?
Put a layer of hydro grains on the bottom of a decorative pot. Place the flower bulb in the potting soil at the right depth. When planted in a pot, they can be somewhat closer together. Water immediately after planting. Move the pot inside in winter as a potted bulb is not frost hardy. 

Care

What do I need?
  • Watering can

How do I care for the flower bulbs?
Water the flower bulbs abundantly in spring and summer. The soil needs to stay thoroughly moist, especially during dry spells. Flower bulbs in a pot or planter can best be put inside in winter. Keep them in a cool and frost-free place.

Replacing a flower bulb
It’s a good idea to plant new flower bulbs every year. After all, they are at their best the first year. 

Extra

Bulbs come in various shapes and sizes... and colours! Over the years, there have been thousands of different cultivars created so really, there is a suitable bulb out there for everyone.
Those with mid-height and taller stems (> 20 cm high) are particularly suited to growing as cut flowers for in a pretty vase.
