Green Thumb Guide

Plant bulbs in well draining soil along with a bulb fertilizer. Should be planted 5"-6" deep at a rate of about 6 bulbs per square foot. Cut foliage back after it turns yellow. Bulbs can either be left to spread naturally or dug up and divided by hand. Store bulbs in a dark, dry, cool place until ready for planting.
