Getting Started With Bulb Planting
Disclosure: I am a blogging partner at eBay. Opinions are entirely my own.
When I was new to gardening, I remember getting ready to plant my first tulip bulbs and, when I opened the package, I couldn’t tell which part of the bulb was which!
The instructions said to put them ‘bottom first’ but darned if I knew which end was the bottom.
That’s one big flaw we make as gardeners: we want to welcome and encourage new gardeners but we overlook the basics, leaving people befuddled and discouraged.
That’s why I wrote this post. I would have made good use of it when I was starting out.

Planting bulbs in autumn is a fairly quick task that yields rather spectacular results in spring. Do it now and thank yourself later with a giant pot of colourful blooms.
