Spring flowering bulbs need loose, humus rich, well-draining soil. They won't grow well in poor or compacted soils. Prepare the soil prior to planting by digging in some compost, or other organic matter, to a depth of 6-8 inches. Once you've amended the soil you can plant your bulbs 4-6 inches deep. They'll flower beautifully for you next spring. Enjoy!
