Flowers are great representations of the positive side of life. First off, it symbolizes just how beautiful life can be, what with all the different and pretty flowers that grow everywhere and at every time of the year. Its many different colors can be likened to how colorful life could be and of course the freshness that flowers provide can be likened to the hope that is always present in every situation in life.
Every season throughout the year has its flowers that bloom and flourish during that particular time of the year. And yet it is during spring time when the flowers are really best appreciated. It is just after winter, so people appreciate the greenery and the colorful flowers much, much more. Of course that’s not to say that flowers are not appreciated or even loved during fall or summer, but spring probably comes ahead a little.
As I have always loved flowers and appreciated all the benefits and positive things that they bring, I always wanted to learn how to plant it. Yes, even though I do love flowers I haven’t been able to learn how to start a little garden of my own. Time constraints prevented it from happening, but now I can devote some time for it. So now I am going to learn how to plant flower bulbs for the spring.
Process of Planting Flower Bulbs
One great about planting flowering bulbs is that it is relatively easy enough and that would ensure that planting it would be a pretty enjoyable one for those who’d be planting it. Still, a few tips will surely be welcome for anyone who would like to learn how to do it properly.
• The first thing to know is when to plant. It should be done as soon as the ground becomes cool. Usually, this is done when the temperatures during the evenings are between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The next thing would be to know where to plant. Flowering bulbs are not really particular about the soil where they are to be planted, as long as the ground is properly drained. It would also be nice if the place enjoys a good amount of sunlight.
• It is important to know the exact depth by which the bulbs would be planted. The usual rule is to plant the bulbs at a depth that is double its own length. As for the spacing between the bulbs, that is left to the discretion of the one who’s planting as it would boil down to what look he would like to achieve for his garden.
• Depending on the look and effect that you would like to achieve for your garden, you could have fun with mixing up and combining the different kinds of bulbs that you could plant. It is entirely your choice and it depends on what you want to achieve. If you’d love to see different colors bunched together, that would be great and if want bulbs that have different flowering times that would be nice too.
