Why Buy Flower Bulbs?
For many gardeners, flower bulbs are one of the first signs of spring. When they burst forth from the ground and blossom, it’s an exciting time that lets you look forward to the warmer weather and the blossoms to follow from other flower bulbs. As they bloom every year, unlike an annual plant, they make your time spent in the garden well worth it.
Tips for Choosing the Right Type of Flower Bulbs
Before you buy flower bulbs for your gardens, our nursery experts recommend answering the following questions:
- When do you want the bulb to bloom?
- Which flower bulbs do you like?
- Where do you plan to plant them?
- What is the climate where you live?
If you want flower bulbs that bloom in April, for instance, you may consider tulips or hyacinths. Or, if you love daffodils, you may settle for blossoming in March.
How to Use Flower Bulbs in Landscapes
When your flower bulbs arrive, you want to have some all-purpose fertilizer to start planting. With your trowel in tow, head to where you’re planning to plant your bulbs — they do well beneath deciduous trees, as well as in partial shade or full sun — and create planter holes for groups or drifts of three or more flower bulbs. If you’re planting daffodils or tulips, make sure they’re seven to eight inches in the ground. Hyacinths only require six inches, while crocuses do well three to four inches beneath the ground.
Once your flower bulbs blossom in the spring, you’ll want to let their foliage die down without intervention. You should, however, add some granular fertilizer when the foliage turns yellow, as that determines the quality of next year’s flowering. Each plant should receive one to two tablespoons of fertilizer. If you notice a difference in next year’s blossoms, such as a decrease in quality and size, consider the possible age of your bulb, as well as crowding. In either case, you’ll want to divide your flower bulbs.
