Q How deep must I plant my bulbs? GLO­RIA DAVIES, CARDIFF

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

A The gen­eral rule with bulbs is to plant them so the top of the bulb is two to three times the height of the bulb be­low the soil sur­face. Bulbs can ad­just their height, over time, so it’s not too crit­i­cal, pro­vided you stick to this rule. How­ever, you can plant tulips much deeper if they’re go­ing into a bed that’s of­ten cul­ti­vated, to stop them be­ing ac­ci­den­tally dam­aged. Deep plant­ing also tends to pre­vent them break­ing up into small, non-flow­er­ing bulbs.
