Colorful displays of purple and mauve deep scented hyacinths, the spicy aroma of a bunch of lilies, the myriad colorful strokes of gladioli spikes, the creamy white of fragrant narcissus’ – what do all these flowers have in common?
You guessed right – all these flowers owe their origin to flower bulbs. To enjoy the beauty of these flowers make the right selection of your raw material first, the flower bulbs. While bulbs are easy to cultivate into flowers, picking the wrong bulbs can make the wait for blooms endless. So it’s well worth paying more to ensure your bulbs result in blooming success!
To produce the most picture-perfect flowers follow these 4 easy steps:
(1) Select bulbs which are fairly large in size. Remember bulbs that are small sometimes require a year or two to grow in size before they become able to bloom. For example bulbils of gladiolus need to be planted over successive years to attain a certain size before they are able to usually bloom. The rule to follow and remember is that the larger the bulb, the larger is the bloom.
(2) Go for bulbs that are fairly solid and seem heavy for their size and have a fairly uniform coloring. Discard bulbs that seem soft to the touch.
(3) Make sure there are no signs of fungus or rot identifiable by dark spots on the bulb. Try not to buy these and if you have already bought some bulbs and they have developed some dark or blue green patches, dust the bulbs with a little fungicide before planting else the fungus could spread in your ground or worse contaminate other bulbs.
(4) Lastly ensure all bulbs you buy have their papery covering intact. This papery covering is called tunic and actually helps protect the bulb. It should preferably be intact. A tip growing from the pointed side of the bulb under the tunic is OK.
Remember properly stored bulbs contain all the energy and nutrients necessary for the bulbs to result in beautiful blooms. All you need to do is to plant them in the right season after selecting them properly. Ensuring the above four tips will guarantee you prized blooms from your bulbs!
