Bulbs for the Desert Southwest Garden

Bulbs are usually the first plants to flower in the spring, along with fruit trees and although their bloom time is short, they really put on a show of color!

Plant spring flowering bulbs in the fall. Most bulbs come with directions on the package and planting depth depends on the size of the bulb. The general rule is to plant bulbs at a depth 3-5 times deeper than their heights and space them at least twice as far apart as they are wide. Add some bone meal to the planting area to ensure a healthy plant. More will be added to this page, selecting bulbs, types of bulbs, arranging, feeding and other care practices. Please check back!
