Most people love lasagne in some form or another, but how many of you are hooked on lasagne when it comes to planting bulbs? Just like making lasagne, this planting is done in layers and the recipe is easier than you think.
The key to effective bulb layering is to plant the bulbs according to size or seasonal blooming period – i.e. from largest to smallest or from late flowering to early flowering. So, the later the flower blooms, the deeper you should plant the bulb. Gardeners can layer their bulbs either in flower beds or in containers such as terracotta pots and wooden planters – just make sure you have big drainage holes in the bottom to ensure the bottom bulbs don’t rot before they’ve had a chance to grow.
This is how you do it:
What are you waiting for? Get ‘baking’ by planting bulbs in layers. Gorgeous floral displays become more beautiful the more you add to them. Layering the right ‘ingredients’ will give the most wonderful effect. Encourage a luscious array of vibrant blooms this spring by planting your bulbs and making sure you feed them well with Hadeco Bulb Food.
