What do You need To Know Before Planting Bulbs?

Try this easy way to do container gardening.

Before you plant a bulb, you need to go through some steps which will help you to grow it fruitfully. In this article, I will tell some basics which people often forget to adapt during gardening and even disappoint from producing. So, let’s start:

Chose the right container

People usually buy a container which is too large for the actual size of plants need. So, picking the best container for your gardening is required. However, container size will depend on where you are going to plant. If you are going to do indoor gardening, then choose a decorative and attractive cell to plant your bulb. For patio or deck containers, make sure for impressive colour that they are at least 16 inches across. Or if you want to place it anywhere then keep a distance of at least 8 inches across.

Deciding How Deep

It is important to make a correct hole in the container for the plant to position it correctly. But how to know how deep it should be. So, the hole size depends on the size and type of bulb you want to plant. It should be ample space for the plant to grow its roots. Before, you dig a hole, ask a garden centre nearby you or search more about the bulb to know its rooting system and work accordingly

Choosing Materials

Before choosing any container, remember the weather. Terra-cottage containers can be damaged during frost, but don’t harm plastic cells. So, know your weather and chose the best size cell and make it more decorative by self crafting. And also make a proper drainage hole at the bottom of the container.

Planting the Bulbs

This factor is important to plant your bulb at the right time to get the best results. Plant the bulb in the fall. Add the nutrition of Plantic Organic Fertilizer to the potting mix, then plant a layer of larger bulb, like daffodils or tulip. Cover it again with another layer of potting mix. After this, add a layer of smaller bulbs, like crocus, then add a potting mix layer over it and leave a 1-inch gap at the top of the pot. Now, place the container in an old spot- garage, shed, porch or patio for the winter.

Watering Your Bulbs

Every plant needs water to do photosynthesis required to complete its need. So, water them regularly and on time to maintain their good health. Spray water thoroughly after you plant the bulbs in the container or garden. And also check the soil for moisture every week with fingertips. The bulb needs moist soil, but be careful, do not overdose the water because this will make your bulbs rot. After several months when the weather starts to warm, the bulbs will start to emerge, and soon, you will see the beautiful blooms in the containers. Try these steps which make your gardening simple and gives you effective results without too much hard work with plants.

Always, remember to feed your plants on time with the power of natural protein-infused Plantic Water-Soluble Plant Food to naturally promote bulb growth. And also maintain the soil health for the next crop.
