i kept putting off planting 100 aliums bulbs that I bought as a special offer because I have a back problem. I got a gardener to plant about 30 of the tallest, but I really wanted to do the rest myself. So yesterday I did manage to plant them all before it started raining. I was so pleased, but then I read the directions for planting! It said plant 8 inches deep and I had planted them only about 3 inches deep because I couldn't dig deeply. Will they be alright? Will they grow properly?
