The Q&A Archives: Bulbs

Question: Which way to plant bulbs? I get this mixed up. Which way is up or top?

Answer: Usually the flat end goes up and the pointy end goes down. If you are unsure, plant them on their sides. They will usually right themselves when the roots begin to grow. Best wishes with your bulbs!
