Planting Bulbs

Which way do you plant the bulbs? I know there is a top and bottom and am not sure. One end looks like it was cut and other end is untouched. I tend to think that is the upside of the bulb, the one with the 'cut', and the flat side being bottom?

I'm not familiar with bulbs that have cuts, but I do know 2 things I can share. 1. The pointier, smoother end goes up and the round, rougher end goes down. 2. If you're not sure which is which, place it on it's side. It'll figure out on it's own how to grow toward the sun and heat. :-) Good luck!

The pointy side goes up. The package should also tell you how deep to plant it.

Better Homes and Garden's has this great guide for multiple lovely flower types...hope it helps!!

Be sure to plant for your zone (if you are in the US).

If you don't know your zone or best planting times, contact your local home extension office..

Happy planting!! I hope you have better luck than me with bulbs! In my neighborhood we call bulbs "deer food". They must be desperate because they even eat the ones they aren't supposed to like :)

You may receive better suggestions/advice if you could provide your USDA zone (or country if not US) as well as the type of bulb you are trying to plant.
A picture of your bulb (and the container it was purchased in) would also be helpful - you can use cell phone and upload picture to this site.

I'm only mentioning this as most bulbs need to be planted in the fall/winter for spring blooming and this is getting on to spring so not sure what bulbs you are planting.
