Green Thumb Guide
Plant bulbs in a sunny spot with enriched, well draining, slightly acidic soil. Apply mulch around base to conserve moisture and protect from hot winds. Use a bulb fertilizer in the planting hole before adding the bulb and burying. Feed again late winter before new growth. Clear away old, dead foliage in winter for a tidy appearance. Divide bulb clusters every 5-8 years.ebstone-organics-surestart,greenall-plantingmix,corona-174-comfort-trowel,ebstone-organics-bulbfood,greenall-patiobarkfine
