Flower bulbs are a group of the most attractive and most diverse plants in every garden. They belong to a species that easily adapt to new environment. One time planted, they will appear again and again, for years without special care. They can grow in pots, in lei of flowers, under the trees or on grass. Most bulbs prefer the position of the sun and well-drained soil. The sorts of low overgrowth should be planted around the edges of the lei or stone garden, while the high types are intended to the back of the lei. Bulbs should be planted at a depth that is two to three times larger than their height, and in the planting spaces two to three times greater than its width. In addition, the depth should be greater if it comes to light soils, and less when it is planted in heavy soil.

 

PLANTING OF FLOWER BULBS

The first thing you should pay attention is the time of planting. This time depends on the time in which the selected bulbs bloom. Spring bulbs such as crocus, tulips, daffodils, etc. should be planted in early fall, and the latest around 6 weeks before the first frost stronger. This period will allow them to develop root and prepare for winter. Summer bulbs such as dahlias, gladioli, etc. should be planted in the spring, at the time when the danger of frost passes. You must observe the time of their planting bulbs because they have their own development cycle that depends on the outside temperature.

Good root development needs transparent and moderately humid soil and one part of that soil should be mixed with three parts of fine sand.

The general rule is to plant bulbs at a depth 2-3 times the height of the bulb. The depth also depends on the soil quality. If they are planted in heavy clay soil, they should be planted at lower depth, and vice versa.

Bulbs grow well in the sunny places or in the partial shade. Good drainage is important for the most of the bulbs, so you should avoid planting in wet areas where water is retained during the rainy period.

After selecting the place, dig up soil to a depth of about 30-inches. In case of heavy clay soil, add large sand for drainage. If the bulbs are used several years ago, which is more usually, we should mix the soil with compost or with other organic fertilizer, NPK 10:10:10 or special fertilizer for bulbs. For the development of root, plants need phosphorus, so we can add an organic fertilizer rich in these elements (superphosphate or bone meal). Avoid the use of bone meal if you have a dog in the garden. Summer bulbs require the addition of compost or ripe manure.

The best period for the planting of spring bulbs is when danger of frost is gone.
They should be planted in a sunny spot in the garden.
Depth of planting of summer bulbs depends on the species. Begonias and dahlias should be planted just below the surface, and bulbs such as gladiolus and lilies should be planted to a depth of two times the height of the bulbs.
The distance between the bulbs varies. Small bulbs can be planted at about 10 cm from each other, Gladioli 12 cm, 25 cm Begonias and Lilies 30 cm. Dahlia can be planted about 40 cm from each other.

Additional watering is necessary during dry periods in the summer, so the soil stays moist.

PLANTING OF FLOWER BULBS

Most autumn bulb succeeds to fully or partially sunny areas with good drainage. Bulbs rot in standing water, so you should avoid flood-prone areas, such as valleys or areas under and around the pipes.

  • plant bulbs of low growth in front of those of higher growth
  • plant bulbs in groups, because it looks more attractive
  • plant early flowering bulbs, for example crocus, dispersed over the entire lawn to achieve a "natural" look
  • daffodils look lovely on the lawn which is not mowed often, and in this way you paint your environment in the spring.
  • experiment. You know the best flowers you like. Choose floral species and varieties by your current mood and plant them on a smaller surface. If you like, add more next year.
