How to naturalise bulbs in grass
1 Remove the turf from your planting area by cutting 4cm deep with a spade, then sliding the blade underneath to slice through the roots. Lift in manageable pieces.
2 Break up the soil surface with a fork, then add some fertiliser and garden compost if necessary. Rake level, then tamp down the surface gently.
3 Scatter the bulbs in small random groups to look natural. Then dig a hole for each one with a trowel, so it sits upright at a depth of three times its height.
4 Backfill with the soil, then lay the pieces of turf back on top. Firm down, ensuring they are level with the rest of the lawn, then water well so they bed back in.
