How To Plant Bulbs

Here is our incredibly easy guide to planting bulbs

Use only bulbs of sound quality – small, damaged or diseased bulbs are more likely to fail at this time of year. Tulip bulbs such as these are a good option for planting later in autumn

Prepare the soil, digging in organic matter to improve it where necessary. Now arrange your bulbs over the surface. They need to be at least two to three bulb-widths apart.

Plant each bulb using a bulb planter or trowel. This stand-up bulb planter will save your back and is the ideal tool where lots of bulb’s are to be planted, in a lawn for example.
