Planting instructions

How to store and plant your flower bulbs

  1. Store your flower bulbs in a paper bag somewhere dark and dry! Basement, closet or garage. 
  2. Plant your bulbs ideally after the last frost (15th may USA zone 3). If you plant your flower bulbs around Mothersday (8th of may) you will be on time to see them flowering this summer!
  3. Dig the holes and space the bulbs minimum 1 foot width apart from each other. In this way the bulbs will have enough space to open up completely. You plant the bulbs 3 inches deep (3''). 
  4. After planting it is the best to water the bulbs and soil. The bulbs will begin to grow roots in three to four weeks after you have planted them. During the growth of your flowers you can water them once or twice a week, depending on the weather
  5. When your flowers are in bloom feel free to cut flower stems for bouquets and enjoy them inside your house
  6. After the blooming has finished you can leave the foliage in place, do not cut it off. With the leaves still on the stems they will gather sunlight and this strengthens the bulb for the future
  7. The the foliage turns yellow and starts to die back you may remove the foliage. The bulbs will surprise you again next spring!


At Your Garden Specialist we sell the healthiest and freshest flower bulbs in the industry. All we sell is 100% grower’s quality - no tired, over-used, old dried out bulbs, EVER! That said, when working with live plants, bulbs and tubers, there are circumstances over which we have no control and cannot guarantee. Bad weather, unfortunate timing, too much or too little sunlight or moisture, basic human incompetence and plain bad luck can all lead to unforeseen and less than satisfactory results. As experienced gardeners are aware, Mother Nature does not promise perfect outcomes, and neither can we.
