Prepare the soil:
Before planting, make sure to prepare the soil properly. Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or rocks. It’s also a good idea to mix in some compost or other organic matter to improve soil fertility.
Lay down the wildflower matting:
Lay down the wildflower matting over the area where you want to plant the bulbs. Make sure the matting is securely anchored in place so it doesn’t blow away.
Cut holes in the matting:
Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut holes in the matting where you want to plant the bulbs. The holes should be big enough to accommodate the bulb and allow it to grow.
Plant the bulbs:
Place the bulbs in the holes and cover with soil. Make sure to follow the planting instructions for the specific type of bulb you are planting.
Water the bulbs well after planting to help them establish roots. After that, you can water them as needed.
Care for the wildflowers:
Once the bulbs have finished blooming, the wildflowers will take over. Make sure to care for the wildflowers properly by watering and fertilizing as needed.
By following these tips, you should be able to successfully plant bulbs under wildflower matting and enjoy a beautiful display of early spring color in your g
