How to Plant

It is hard to give planting instructions in a few lines for each species, so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to phone, write or e-mail. Generally speaking, bulbs should be planted in a hole two times the length of the bulb. Some do better a little deeper than this. Rhizomes or bulbils are planted up to 1″/2.5cm below the surface. Planting in the cultivated ground is always good as plants and bulbs have less competition when establishing but bulbs and some plants (such as Primroses) can be planted in the grass (which can protect bulbs against rodents). Please bear in mind that some bulbs may take a season to settle in, possibly appearing later than normal. Add plenty of organic material to the soil before planting.
