Follow the rule of thumb

One should actually think that there is nothing wrong with planting bulbs. But it is still possible.

Flower bulbs can remain in the soil all year round
If the first signs of spring such as tulips, daffodils or crocuses are supposed to open their flowers from March, then you have to make sure to bring them underground in autumn. Warning: once the bulbs have been planted, you no longer need to dig them out after flowering. You can confidently stay in the ground all year round. But first you have to go in there. The correct planting depth is important here. If they are set too low, they cannot develop properly, if they are not deep enough, they can fall over.

Rule of thumb:
Always plant twice as deep as the flower bulb is large. Here some examples:

Set about 5 cm deep:
Anemones, snowdrops, grape hyacinths

Set about 10 cm deep:
Early tulips and early daffodils, crocuses and hyacinths

Set approximately 15 cm deep:
Late daffodils, tulips and lilies

Set approximately 25 cm deep:
Ornamental onion and imperial crown

Follow our rule of thumb, and in spring you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the many flowers.

Put flower bulbs step by step

Working with a flower planter is particularly easy and precise. Here is a small series of pictures from my garden.

Step 1: Expose the soil and spread the bulb planter apart

Step 2: sink the bulb planter deep into the earth

Step 3: Let go of the spreading device of the planting device and simply pull it out of the ground. The result is a perfect planting hole:

Step 4: Place the flower bulb in the planting hole with the pointed side up (!)

Extra tip for the look in the flower bed

In my opinion, the plantings look particularly beautiful when the flowers are placed in odd groups. So best three or five groups. It just looks more harmonious.
