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.

Freesia:
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.

Ranunculus:
Store Ranunculus bulbs in a dry, airy place until your area is free of frost.  Select a sunny, well-drained, compost-rich location.  Plant tubers about 2 inches deep and 4 inches apart with the little legs pointing down.  Keep soil moist but not wet.

Dutch iris
Plant 6 inches deep and 4 inches apart. Use medium drained soil with moderate water.
