Planting and care
You can plant 4 to 5 bulbs per sq. foot in the fall. Loosen the soil with a fork and plant the bulb with the point up and roots down. Plant 6" apart from a center of a bulb to the center of a bulb.
Each bulb should be planted 2 to 3 times as deep as the bulb, with at least 3" of soil over the top. Potted bulbs can always be planted a little closer than those in the garden.
