Most bulbs like a light, well-drained soil in a full sun position so choose your site well to have the best display. Bulbs look best planted in drifts of 2-3 ,and their planting distances are advised in our instruction booklets.
Some bulbs can be naturalised to create a vast spread of bulbs throughout your lawn, to find out which types and how, see Sarah's article 'Planting and naturalising bulbs in grass'
