Tulip Bulbs
Plant advice

Soil type:
Ordinary garden soil is usually fine for bulbs, as long as it is not too damp.

Planting depth
The general rule for planting depth of bulbs and tubers is to plant a bulb twice as deep as its height. That is for large bulbs such as narcissi, tulips and hyacinths around 15 to 20 centimetres deep. The planting depth is around 5 to 10 centimetres for small crops such as snowdrops and crocuses.

The right distance
Large bulbs need more space between each other than small bulbs. Large bulbs should be planted with a space of about 12 cm between each other. Small bulbs need a space between each other of around 5 to 7 cm. The space between the bulbs or the number per square metre depends on the effect you have in mind. For an unforced, natural effect, plant the bulbs at varied distances. If the desired effect is a close, flower-carpet effect then the bulbs should be set at an even distance from each other.

Planting time
Most bulbs and tubers planted in autumn bloom in spring or early summer. By planting bulbs in autumn they go through a cold period. This period is necessary for root formation. The best time to plant bulbs or tubers is from September (snowdrops) to December (Allium). It is best to plant other types of spring flowers in October. Summer and autumn-flowering plants should be planted in spring.

How to plant bulbs in the open ground
- Dig a hole for planting. Use a bulb-planter or small shovel for this.
- Mix the available soil with some compost.
- Push the bulb into the hole. Large bulbs should be set vertically, with the point upward and root extension downward. Small bulbs can be sprinkled in the planting hole.
- Dig the earth over the bulbs.
- Give the bulbs generous amounts of water after planting.

How to plant bulbs for terrace and balcony
Planting flower bulbs in pots is simple. Choose a pot or planter that is not too small and contains a drainage hole. Some broken pieces of plant pot or clay pellets should be laid over this hole. Excessive water can then drain easily. You should then fill the pot or planter. Use enough potting compost so the bulbs can be planted at the right depth. Place the bulbs in the soil and fill the pot right up to the rim. Bulbs in pots and planters can be placed a little closer together than in open ground. This makes it look more attractive.

Many bulbs can stay in the ground after blooming. Leave them rest and let the leaves die off naturally. The following year they will bloom again abundantly.

Fertilizing is essential!
Give fertilizer when the bulbs appear above ground and repeat directly after blooming.
