Bulb Planting Tips!

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

Are you a planner? Have you planned your spring color? The golden trumpet daffodil is an excellent addition to your flower bed.

When picking the location for planting daffodils, make sure the place will get at least six hours of direct sunlight in the spring, as these plants need lots of sun after they bloom to produce the following year's flowers.

Also, select a location that has well-drained soil. If you wonder how many bulbs you will need for a dense, full display, check out this blub calculator: It also helps with formulas to help calculate the area of a flower bed.

Bulbs should be planted with the roots down, but don't be concerned if bulbs are pushed sideways or turned upside down when you replace the soil. They will grow properly, thanks to geotropism—plants’ stems always grow opposite gravity.

Here at M.J. Design, in addition to the traditional spring bulbs of tulips and daffodils, we are going to try some new less-known bulbs like; Fritilaris, Anemone, and Mexican Blue Bells.  Aside from different colors and blooms, they are also known to be deer resistant.
