The ideal soil temperature is 13°C as in colder soil bulbs will not start to grow and may rot. Aim to plant dry bulbs directly after purchase.
Different bulbs need different soil types but summer bulbs generally like a warm, sunny position. Free-draining soil is important as bulbs are susceptible to rotting.
Dig individual holes for each bulb or a trench for many bulbs. Place bulbs in the holes without pushing down hard.
Use the bulb as a guide and plant it two or three times its depth. Space them approximately two to three bulb widths apart.
