What is a flower bulb

A flower bulb is an organic package from which flowers grow. Usually formed beneath the soil, a flowering bulb consists of a short stem, surrounded by fleshy leaves that store food ready for growth.

How to plant flower bulbs

Most flower bulbs should be planted at least twice as deep as their height, leaving about two bulb widths between each one. So, if a bulb is 5cm tall, plant at a depth of 10cm. Tulip bulbs are an exception, and need to be planted at a depth of about 20cm.

Visit the Suttons blog for more information on how to plant spring flowering bulbs and other great gardening advice.

How to store bulbs after flowering

Allow approximately six weeks after flowering for the plant to fully wilt and nutrients to return to the bulb, before carefully digging up. Ditch damaged or diseased bulbs, keep only healthy bulbs of a decent size to ensure a good chance of flowering next year. Before storing away, dry the bulbs for a few days to help prevent fungal rot developing. Store in a dry, cool place until ready for replanting.

Alternatively you can naturalise your bulbs by leaving naturalising bulbs in the ground to self seed and propagate naturally. You'll need to consider carefully where to place bulbs and allow space for growth each year. Snowdrop and crocus bulbs are well suited to planting in lawns, other varieties prefer more shaded areas. Read our guide on how to naturalise bulbs for more information.
