How to Use

How to plant bulbs indoors
Select large, clean healthy-looking bulbs for the best results. Place some Westland Bulb Planting Compost in the bottom of a clean container. Place the bulbs on this firmly, ensuring that they are pointing upwards. Add more bulb planting compost so that only their tips can be seen above the surface. Place container in a cupboard, or anywhere that is cold, airy and dark. Examine the container regularly to ensure that it does not dry out. Water as necessary. Once the shoots have reached a height of 1-2” move the container to a light and cool room or porch (10ºC or 50ºF). Move the container again into a warmer room once the shoots have become fully green. Ensure that the container is kept away from both excessive heat sources and draughts.

Aftercare for indoor bulbs

Once the bulbs have finished flowering, move them to a light cool place and continue to water regularly and feed. When all the foliage has died down allow the bulbs to dry out and store in a cool dry, frost free place until planting for the next year.

How to plant bulbs outside

Dig a hole 4-6” deep and cover the bottom with a layer of Westland Bulb Planting Compost. Place bulbs firmly into the compost. Fill the remainder of the hole with Westland Bulb Planting Compost. Water thoroughly.

Aftercare for Outdoor Bulbs

Once the bulbs have flowered water regularly and feed with a liquid feed.
