You can plant bulbs just about anywhere in your garden as long as the soil drains well. The Dutch say, “bulbs don’t like wet feet.” So, avoid areas where water collects, such as the bottom of hills. Bulbs like sun and in many areas the spring garden can be very sunny, since the leaves on the trees are not out yet. So keep in mind when planting in the fall that you can plant in many places for spring blooms.
- Each Puschkinia plant produces a single flower stalk topped with a cluster of small bluish-white flowers.
- Plant the seeds in fall and provide them with shade and water until they sprout.
- Keep your Puschkinia bulb planting healthy by watering consistently during the blooming period to ensure the soil remains moist.
“Puschkinia blooms in spring and is an attractive addition to mixed plantings with later-blooming bulbs.”
