Gravel in the plant hole serves as drainage

When planting a drainage is important so that the bulbs do not suffer from waterlogging in any season. Has proved a three to five centimeters thick layer of gravel or sand, which comes down into the planting hole. The soil should be rich in humus and definitely have a good drainage, so that the onions do not rot. Waterlogged soil is out of the question for planting bulbous flowers. Do not set the onions individually, but rather three to ten pieces per planting hole. In spring, the small flowers sprout densely and form beautiful conspicuous groups. Since many species are self-propagating, they often form dense flower carpets within a few years. The basic rule for the depth of the planting holes is: set twice as deep as the onion is large. The top of an onion three centimeters in diameter is covered with three inches of soil, their bottom is then six inches deep in the ground.
