Even though Fall just arrived, I am already anticipating those pretty colorful blooms of early Spring bulbs. I’m a sucker for Spring and when I see those Crocus – I know it’s right around the corner! Now is the time to plan for and purchase your Spring blooming bulbs but don’t plant until around the last week of October/early November.
Planting is really easy and we have it broken down for you below…
- Good soil prep! You want loose, porous, well-drained soil. Good drainage for bulbs is a must! You can try adding peat moss or other soil amendments to lighten up your soil if it’s too heavy.
- Mix in little bone meal for some long lasting phosphorus – phosphorus is crucial for bulb and root growth.
- The planting depth of bulbs depends on their size and should be listed on any bulb packaging. If it’s not listed, a rule of thumb to go by is that the depth should be 3x the diameter of the bulb.
- The spacing of the bulbs depends largely on the overall look you desire. We think that larger clumps look better than a single row but you do what YOU want to do.
- After planting, water gently to set them in. Don’t overly soak the soil.
- Wait until Spring 🙂
