In order to enjoy the lovely flowers and foliage in the public space of your business complex, urban park or municipal flower bed for as long as possible, it is important to keep the following tips in mind when planting your flower bulbs:
If the bulbs are not to be planted immediately on receipt, it is important that you open the boxes right away and store the bulbs in a cool, dry place with sufficient ventilation.
Proper soil for bulbs
Most types of flower bulbs dislike having 'soggy feet'. As a result, it's important that the soil have good drainage and contain a bit of humus. If the soil is lacking in humus, you can spread some compost on the area and work it into the soil before planting.
It is vital that bulbs are always planted at the proper depth. Plant them too deep, and there is a chance of delayed bloom and rot; too shallow, and they are at risk of freezing and drying out. The rule of thumb is to plant bulbs at a depth equal to twice their height, with a minimum of 5 cm.
