Flower Bulbs Planting Depth
The depth for planting bulbs is important. Plant them too deep, and they
can't fight their way to the surface. Planting them deep will also increase
the moisture level they experience. While bulbs are used to cold, wet soils,
too much water can cause them to rot. Plant them too shallow, and they can
freeze and die if the soil freezes to their depth.
So, what is the proper depth? There is no deep secret, or rocket science
here. A general rule of thumb is to plant them to a depth of twice the diameter
of the bulb.
When buying bulbs, check to see if there are planting instructions on the
package. If so, use the suppliers recommendations. If not, revert to the
"rule of thumb".
