Strike Balance with Flower Bulbs

Plants are important parts of outdoor living areas and creating colorful, comfortable spaces. Flower bulbs play an important role in creating a well-rounded garden.

Natural spaces like gardens are great for relaxing and unwinding. Growing the right blend of flowers and plants is essential to enjoying the garden you've created. Bulb flowers like tulips, grape hyacinths, and hyacinths in brighter pastels add bright pops of color to any garden. Bulb flower experts from ibulb give the following advice on planting. 

Planting Bulb Flowers

1. Dig a hole for a group of lower bulbs or make smaller holes for planting single bulbs. The size of the bulb determines how deep it should be planted. Larger flower bulbs (2 inches or larger in diameter) should be planted at 6 inches deep, and smaller ones at 3 to 4 inches deep.

2. Remove weeds and work some garden mould into the soil to improve drainage.

3. Place flower bulbs gently into the soil with the point on top. Large bulbs should be planted 3 to 8 inches apart, and smaller ones 1 to 3 inches apart.

4. Cover the bulbs with the soil dug from the hole. 

5. If the soil is dry, give the bulbs some water.
