How Do You Plant Spring Flowering Bulbs?Spring flowering bulbs need a sunny spot with well-draining soil to thrive. Pick an area with good drainage to prevent the bulbs from rotting. Add organic matter, like compost or well-rotted manure, to the soil to improve its fertility and drainage. Plant the bulbs 2-3 times their width and gently cover with soil, lightly tamping the soil down. Water in the bulbs.
Each spring when flower stems and foliage begin to emerge from the ground, apply fertilizer. Like all flowers, bulbs appreciate regular watering. As a general rule, they should be deeply watered anytime natural rainfall is less than one inch per week during their growing and blooming season. After your spring-blooming bulbs have flowered and faded, leave the foliage intact to encourage the bulbs to produce more flowers next year. You may deadhead the spent flowers for a clean look in your garden.
