Flower bulbs have to be planted in the fall and they should never be stored on top of each other. These and more tips, there are in our little guide.
Autumn is the time for flower bulbs to be greeted in the spring with tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses. Spring flowers may not be missing in any garden and are particularly good for planting borders or as a limitation of paths.
Plant in the fall
Flower bulbs are brought into the ground in autumn, which can well happen until December. However, it should not be too late, because the onions should form the first shoots before the frost. They are not looking out of the onion, but they are close to it.
Which planting depth applies to flower bulbs?
As a rule of thumb, set the planting hole about twice as deep as the flower bulbs are thick. Make sure that the floor is nice and relaxed. If not, simply loosen up the heavy soil with a little sand.
Very important: The tip of the flower bulb must point upwards!
Tip: Put flower bulbs in odd groups
You can plant the bulbs individually, but also in groups, that looks especially beautiful in the flowering season. It is especially natural and beautiful when the flower bulbs are planted in odd groups. For example in groups of 3 or 5. The correct planting distance can be found in the packaging.

In the spring, withered plants cut off
After blooming in spring, cut off the withered plants just above the ground and leave them for a few more weeks. This allows onions to gather forces and absorb more nutrients from the soil. Leaves and stems are removed only when they are withered.
Dispose of moldy onions
After about four weeks, the onions come out. Here you check whether the onions are still in order. Please dispose of broken, dried or moldy onions (not on the compost!).
Store bulbs cool and airy
The other onions are then stored cool and airy until the fall, ideally on a spread newspaper on the floor or on the shelf. Do not stack the onions in a box on top of each other - this promotes mold growth. Also, infested onions can infect others. If you pay attention to it, you will have much joy in your spring messenger next spring.
