Spring bulbs are one of the easiest plants to grow, and so rewarding. Read our comprehensive guide to growing spring-flowering bulbs, or follow these simple instructions:
  • Choose a sunny area of the garden.
  • Well-draining soil is essential, so dig in plenty of compost and rake the soil evenly before planting.
  • Small bulbs about 5cm deep, and spaced 5cm apart.
  • Keep soil moist at root level. Soak your soil down to a depth of 15cm every 4-5 days, and mulch with compost or bark chips to help conserve moisture.
  • Feed bulbs with bulb food once every two weeks for maximum flowering and foliage.
