Muscari, Grape Hyacinth Siberian Tiger (White) – Bulbs (set of 5)
Loosen the soil and remove any weeds, competing for roots, and stones from the area you plan to plant. Plant the bulbs in groups of ten or more, and be sure to set the bulbs twice as deep as they’re tall, at least a couple of inches apart. Leaves will show up quickly. Just ignore them. Grape hyacinths send their leaves up out of the ground in the fall. This is strange because it’s just before winter comes and you would think they would not survive. Amazingly, they are very reliable every fall after the first year they grow.
Where to Plant Grape Bulbs
- Grape hyacinths start from small fleshy little bulbs. Keep in mind that the small bulbs can dry out easier than the bigger ones, so plan on planting them early in the fall so they get enough moisture. Grape hyacinths grow in sun or light shade, so they’re not too picky. They just don’t like extremes, so don’t plant them where it’s too wet or too dry.
- Be careful where you plant grape hyacinth bulbs because grape hyacinths spread very quickly. They can be quite invasive. You should plant them where you truly don’t mind them spreading freely, like under some shrubs, rather than say, around the edge of a well-planned garden area.
