Compared to other plants, flower bulbs are low-maintenance plants. Aside from weeding and fertilising areas planted for multiple-year flowering, there are few other specific requirements. Care must be taken not to hoe too deeply when weeding borders because this could damage bulbs beneath the surface. If extensive hoeing is needed, it would be advisable to plant the bulbs somewhat deeper than indicated on the packaging.

Plantings intended for one-year flowering require no additional maintenance at all!
