Select a sunny spot in your garden after the last frost of spring. The soil should be well draining and have a good organic composition. If necessary, amend the soil with any of the following: ground bark, compost, peat moss or decomposed manure. Tuberose prefers a drier earth and does not do well in soil that remains puddled or becomes water-logged after watering.

Dig a hole that's 4 to 5 inches deep which will allow for 2 to 3 inches of soil on top of the bulb.

Place a tuberose bulb, or small "clump" of bulbs, into the hole and fill with soil. If you intend to plant several bulbs, space them 10 to 12 inches apart in the bed.

Water the soil thoroughly after planting. In a few weeks, the bulb growth will begin to show. Regularly water your tuberose during the growing season.

Hope this answers all your questions!
