How deep to plant leafy bulbs?
I've been giving my garden a very much overdue tidy and rediscovered my white pineapple lily hidden under some enthusiastic ferns. These haven't flowered since I planted them 2 years ago and I decided to dig them up and move them because the slugs are going to destroy them and they aren't getting very much sun. I originally planted them straight from the pot I bought them in whilst still flowering and the bulbs were hardly below the surface. I've just been reading that they should be 6 inches below the soil. They have good leaf growth and have multiplied....should I just go for it and plant them at the depth they should be and bury the leaves or re-plant them at the same shallow depth then plant them deeper in autumn when the foliage has died back? I'm afraid this is a new quandary for me!
