16 www.GardenBargains.comHow to plant...Bulbs will do best when planted into well drained fertile soil, and if possible a sunny position. Culivate the soil and sprinkle a handful of Blood Fish and Bone.Planting bulbs couldn't be
easier. Aim to plant in small
groups with the bulbs
quite close together as this will give the most dramatic display. Allow a distance of about three bulb widths between each one. Planting depth depends on type of bulb but a reliable rule is to plant such that there is soil above each bulb equivalent to twice the bulb height.
