Our advices ?
Opt for the purchase by the piece rather than mixture, you can choose bulbs well firm, especially not started and without traces of mold. Plant them quickly because they do not like to be stored. For a natural look, prefer a random arrangement (throw a handful of bulbs on the fly and bury them where they fell). Namely: it is said that it is necessary to bury the bulb under twice its height of earth, a little less in clayey earth, a little more in sandy earth. Finally, do not hesitate to plant tight (at a distance of 3 to 5 cm for small bulbs, the double for larger) for a beautiful carpet effect.
