how many you want to plant and what kind of colors and forms you want to see (mass plantings vs.
single blooms), and when to plant them.

Giant Alliums 10-12 inches apart.
most bulbs need 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day.
plant your flower bulbs as soon as you get them home, when the ground temperatures have fallen to 60
degrees Fahrenheit. See the U.S. bulb planting Regions Map
plant the bulb twice the depth of the height of the bulb
when you are finished planting the bulbs, water the area heavily, it helps your flower bulbs to settle
in the soil.
