Garden Bulbs General Information Articles.

Garden Bulbs are or should be one of the easiest ornamental plants to grow. The main problems occur when it is forgotten that bulbs are actually plants and have specific needs - even when dormant.

As they generally oblige us by 'hiding' away when not in flowering growth, bulbs are often neglected insofar as feeding and watering are concerned. The dormant period is particularly important - even though you cannot see the bulbs. Many will require watering whilst dormant - especially the spring flowering bulbs that lie dormant in the summer months. Important changes take place during the bulb's dormancy period, and for long lasting pleasure from your bulbs, it is important to give them the year-round attention that they need.

This series of articles should provide you with the general growing specifics, whilst the general bulb pages will give you the detailed requirements.
