Planting bulbs in the fall
1) Start by preparing your soil by removing weeds and removing small pebbles. Add potting soil to your garden soil to improve drainage.
2) If you want to make a group of flowers, dig a big hole. If you plan to plant a few bulbs, make several small holes. The depth will depend on the size of the bulb. Small bulbs 2.5 to 5 cm in diameter need a hole 7 to 10 cm deep. For larger ones (from 5 cm in diameter), make holes 15 cm deep.
3) Place the bulbs in the holes, facing up. Be careful not to damage the roots too much, don’t push, just drop them. Place each bulb 7 to 20 cm apart depending on their size.
4) Finally, fill the holes and water if the soil is too dry.
