There are so many beautiful spring flowering bulbs – which one should you choose?!? Many of them have very similar requirements in terms of when they should be planted, how many hours of sunlight they require, and the amount of soil moisture they will tolerate. So, why choose just one when you can plant several?
When designing your spring flowering bulb beds, aim to plant early-, mid-, and late-season bloomers to extend the interest in your flowerbeds. Plant bulbs that produce shorter plants toward the front of your flowerbeds and plant the bulbs that produce taller plants toward the back of your flowerbeds. Bulb packages should provide information about bloom time, plant height, and the depth to plant the bulb. (Generally speaking, bulbs should be planted at 3 to 4x the height of the bulb.)
