Winter Bulb Tips

After planting (and there’s still time if you haven’t gotten to them yet!) always top dress with something organic and water in well or the roots won’t grow.

By moisturizing the soil, this process will also minimize “heaving” the bulbs out of the ground over winter and through the spring thaw.

Water them all winter, every 3-4 weeks. Then, when spring finally comes, be sure to water them yet again to maximize bloom time.
