Choose healthy bulbs without mold or bruising and select the right location. Most flowering bulbs prefer full sun, which most planting sites receive in the spring as the trees don’t yet have their leaves.
So don’t overlook a spot in your garden just because it’s a bit shady in the fall. It is best to apply fertilizer and lime according to the results of a soil test. The soil pH for most bulbs should be between 6 and 7.
