How do I plant the flower bulb lasagne?
Take the lasagne out of the packaging. The three layers of flower bulbs are now ready to be planted in the border or in a flower pot. The lasagne sheets are made of potato starch, so biodegradable. Plant the flower bulb lasagne in autumn and enjoy its beautiful flowers in spring.
Planting the lasagne in a flower pot
Take a flower pot with a hole in the bottom so excess water can escape. Fill the pot with a layer of hydro grains and a layer of potting soil. Then place the bottom layer from the box and put 1 cm of potting soil on top of it. Then place the second lasagne layer and put 1 cm of potting soil on top of it too. Lastly, you take the top layer out of the box. Fill the pot up with potting soil until just below the edge and water once in a while.
How do I plant the flower bulb lasagne in the garden?
In your garden, make a deep planting hole, place the bottom layer from the box and put 1 cm of potting soil on top of it. Then place the second lasagne layer and put 1 cm of potting soil on top of it too. Lastly, you take the top layer out of the box. Cover the last layer with a bit of potting soil as well. Watering is not needed.
Planting in layers made easy!
Use a planter large enough for the 3 bulb lasagne’s to fit in (Ø 28 cm) and plant them one after the other, layer 3 being the deepest. After planting stand the pot outdoors and water it a little in spring when it is very dry. From the beginning of March ‘let the flower festival commence’!

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.
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.
