  • Prepare Your Soil – Good soil drainage is essential in raising bulbs. If you have a soil with high clay content, it can be improved by adding compost such as Back to Earth or Humore to the soil.
  • Fertilization – After digging the hole for the bulb apply a bulb fertilizer, such as Bone Meal to the bottom of the hole.
  • Vermin Prevention – To protect bulbs from birds, squirrels, and chipmunks apply Repels-All in the hole along with the fertilizer.
  • Planting – The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant 2-3 times as deep as the bulb is tall. Unsure which side is up? Plant the bulb on its side and gravity will do the rest.
  • Water– Water well after planting. This will help settle the soil in the planting bed and will also provide the moisture necessary for the bulbs to start rooting. Avoid over-watering at planting time since this can result in bulb rot.
  • Mulching – Apply mulch to keep the weeds down and to retain moisture. Mulch also acts as an insulator to help minimize temperature fluctuations in the bed.
