Planting Bulbs That Bloom In Spring
-Prepare the soil. Bulbs do best in well-drained soil, so if your yard has heavy clay or poor drainage, consider amending the soil with some compost or sand.
-Plant at the right depth. The general rule of thumb is to plant bulbs two to three times as deep as they are tall. Therefore, you should plant a bulb four to six inches deep if it is two inches tall.
-Water well. After planting, water your bulbs deeply to help them get established. Once they start growing, they will be more drought tolerant.
By following these tips, you can enjoy a beautiful spring garden full of color.
