When to plant flower bulbs?
Flower bulbs are divided in two types: spring flowering bulbs and summer flowering bulbs. The names already tell you when these flowers are ready to show you their beauty.
- It might be a bit confusing, but spring flowering bulbs are to be planted in autumn. The best time to plant spring flowering bulbs is from September until early December.
- Summer flowering bulbs, on the other hand, can be planted once night frost has passed. Usually, this is around April or May.
Tip: We advise you to plant bulbs 3 times as deep into the ground as their height. Is your bulbs 5 centimetres high? Plant it 15 centimetres deep using a handtool such as a trowel.
