FAQ'S

GROW YOUR KNOWLEDGE

Spring planting bulbs are bulbs that should be planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. The number of spring bulbs is quite extensive, but the most popular varieties include gladiolus, begonias, dahlias, lilies, freesia, anemone, tigridia, acidanthera, montbretia, sparaxis, iris, brodea, liatris, and callas.
Spring planted/summer flowering bulbs and tubers can be planted in the spring when you are certain the ground will no longer freeze in your area.
Fall planting bulbs are plant species that need to be planted in the ground in the fall before the first hard frost. Bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, narcissus, hyacinths, iris, allium, fritillaria, and scilla require a cold period in order to form roots, and based on lighting and warmth conditions will bloom in the spring.
Fall bulbs must be planted in the fall before the first hard frost. It is best to wait until the outside temperature does not reach 65 degrees anymore. If there is a hard frost in the first couple weeks after planting, mulch your beds and remove in the spring. Light morning frosts will not hurt the bulbs.
A general rule of thumb is to plant the bulb about 5 inches deep. there are some exceptions that should be planted just beneath the soil surface. Check your packaging for specific planting depths.
Check your packaging for specific spacing information. Spacing can vary according to the effect you want to achieve.
Yes, bulbs can be planted in containers. Containers are more susceptible to freezing temperatures. As a result, bulbs planted in containers may react as an annual as opposed to a perennial.
Bulbs should be planted within 6 months of purchase. Bulbs are dormant and are living products that need the right balance of water and soil. Leaving bulbs out of the ground for too long will cause them to lose their hydration and die.
Deer resistant does not mean that deer will not eat a particular plant, it means they prefer other vegetation. Deer resistant varieties include daffodils, allium, irises, hyacinth, muscari, fritillaria, and anemones. However, there is little a deer will not eat to avoid starvation.
A Hardiness zone is a geographically defined area in which a specific category of plant life is capable of growing. For more details about your specific region please see the usda hardiness zone map.
Fertilizer is not necessary, but for increased performance a small application of Bulb Booster or bone meal is acceptable. It is more important to make sure the pH level of your soil is correct.
Let the leaves die down naturally; do not cut them off or mow over them. After bulbs have bloomed it is important to let them rest because during this period, the bulb is gathering nutrients from the soil and growing so that it can bloom again next year.
Remove this plastic wrapper. Place disk in a 2 qt. container. Add 1 cup warm water. Allow disk to absorb water (approximately 15 minutes) and expand into the growing medium for use in your planter. If necessary, add another 1/4 cup of warm water. Stir the mixture and drain the excess water if necessary.
This is packing material for the bulb while it is in the store and you do not need it for planting. Once you remove the bulb(s) from the packaging, you can throw out this leftover material.
When blooms fade, cut off the tubular flower stem near the top of the bulb, leaving the foliage to continue growing. Water as usual and apply a water-soluble fertilizer every four weeks. Once the danger of frost is past, you may move your Amaryllis bulb outdoors to your garden where it can enjoy the summer sun.
