I have bought some bulbs this week but in the planting advice there is no depth guide
So I would like to know how deep to plant these bulbs please
Also if I choose not to plant these this year how best to keep them.
The reason why I ask is I may pull up my lawn in the spring and reseed it as Its really in bad shape hard clay with a lot of lumps and bumps I have aerated it four times now and added sand to it but it’s still in bad shape compacted with five dogs running around all winter and spring. I have nearly finished my fence to keep the dogs off the lawn this year so it will not happen again.
Saying this it is a health hazard as you could twist your ankle quite easily it that uneven at the moment but like everyone else it’s down to money.
I think I would easily need 4 ton of top soil to make any impact on the lawn. I think I would hire a turf cutter first then rotavator clear as much tree roots away then add my top soil and seed it.
But the front garden is my next big project as this has even more trees/bushes that need to be removed I do plan to make wooden raised beds and gravel in between the beds and plant a mixture of veg and flowers and lose the lawn all together as it’s not really that big a area for a lawn also it’s in full sun all day with conifers lined in a L shape around it.
