●Knowing Flower Bulbs: What Are They?

If you don’t know exactly what flower bulbs are, here’s a quick gist for you! They are underground modifications or formations of certain flowering plants that grow to escape the persisting unfavorable growing conditions. In short, flower bulb plants grow to become super self-sufficient. How? The bulbs they grow exist and stay dormant under the soil even if their plants die above ground. This means that when the season for these flowers comes back, they will grow beautifully from the bulbs.
So, flower bulbs are basically self-sustaining, resilient asexual offsprings of their bulb plants. When you’re growing flowers from bulbs, there are a few things to keep in mind so that your bulbs can do well, whether planted indoors or outdoors.

●Basics of Growing Flower Bulbs: Here’s What You Should Know

When growing flower bulbs, their care might seem a little too complex and different to you if you don’t know exactly what to do. But once you know what it entails, it gets significantly easier because the process isn’t that complicated! Here are a few basics to keep in mind:

1. Choose the Right Bulbs

You must remember to select bulbs that are firm and free from mold or damage. The size of the bulbs often indicates their potential for flowering. However, this isn’t something you need to worry about as we bring you only the best quality flower bulbs for a brilliant bloom and healthy garden, so you can buy flower bulbs without any care other than preference!

2. Planting Depth

Plant your flower bulbs at an appropriate depth. A general rule while planting bulbs is to plant them at a depth that is two to three times the height of the bulb. Deeper planting depths are suitable only for larger bulbs.

3. Sunlight Requirements

Most flower bulbs prefer full sunlight or partial shade. So, ensure that they receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day for optimal growth and flowering.

4. Well-Drained Soil

Bulbs dislike sitting in waterlogged soil as it makes them more vulnerable to rot. Plant them in well-draining soil to prevent this; adding organic matter such as compost to improve soil structure and drainage.

5. Watering

Water your newly planted bulbs thoroughly to settle the soil around them and promote root growth. Once established, water the bulbs regularly, especially during dry spells, but avoid overwatering as it can cause them to rot.

6. Fertilization

Incorporate a balanced fertilizer into the soil before planting flower bulbs to provide essential nutrients. However, remember to avoid using high-nitrogen fertilizers, as they can promote leaf growth at the expense of flowering.

7. Mulching

Mulch around the base of the bulb plants to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Organic mulches like compost or shredded leaves are ideal for this!

8. Deadheading and Pruning

Remove spent flowers (deadheading) to encourage continuous blooming and prevent the plant from spending any of its energy on seed production. Once the foliage turns yellow and withers after flowering, you can trim the plant back.

9. Winter Protection

In colder climates, you can provide winter protection for bulbs by applying a layer of mulch over the soil surface to insulate them from extremely cold temperatures.

10. Division and Transplanting

Some bulbs benefit from periodic division to prevent overcrowding and maintain vigor. Divide bulbs when they become overcrowded, usually every few years, and replant them in well-prepared soil.
