Select a spot in the garden that receives full sun where the soil drains well. Loosen the soil, and plant the bulbs, pointy end up, approximately 1″ below the soil and 15-18″ apart. Tamp down the soil and water well after planting. Foliage should be left to die back naturally as it provides the nutrients the bulb will need to grow and flower the following year.
