While most of us are just starting bring out our fall décor and adorn our porches with mums, pumpkins, and pansy planters – it’s actually time to be “thinking spring” when it comes to some of your favorite spring bloomers.

SOIL

Ideal soil for bulbs includes good drainage; therefore, picking the right spot for planting bulbs needs to be in an area that drains well. Pooled or standing water will lead to root rot.

DEPTH

The proper planting depth for spring-flowering bulbs is important for overall plant health as well as ensuring the bulbs will bloom. Different types of flowering bulbs need to be planted at different depths, but a good general rule of thumb is to plant the bulb at three times the height of the bulb.
