How to nat­u­ralise bulbs in grass

Gardeners' World - - What To Do Now -

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.
