Misc. Bulbs

Plant your miscellaneous bulbs immediately upon receipt. Smaller bulbs should be planted fairly close together, roughly 4 inches apart and 2 - 3 times as deep as their height. To create a border splash of color, you can plant them even closer, to the point where the bulbs are almost touching. Choose a site which receives at least 4-6 hours of sunlight each day and is well-drained. Water frequently in spring. Cover with mulch in winter. Peat moss, pine needles, leaves, straw or grass cuttings are good materials to use.

If your area is not yet free of frost, store all of the bulbs/tubers in a dry, airy place where the temperature stays in the 60-65 degree Fahrenheit range, until the danger of a hard frost has passed.  Plant bulbs about 2 inches deep and 4 inches apart in a sunny area.  Keep the plants moist but not wet.
