Gardening is a great way to show your creativity, and is especially rewarding when bursts of vibrant colors start appearing in your garden. One of the most popular forms of growing your own plot is bulb gardening. Bulbs come in all shapes and sizes, and can help you create a variety of landscaping results.

If you are new to planting bulbs, it can be a bit challenging and confusing. Common questions include: How many bulbs are needed? When is the right time to plant them? Will the bulb last through a freezing winter?

One of the main things to keep in mind when planting bulbs is the season. Bulbs generally grow in the spring, summer and fall. While most bulbs take anywhere from 6-8 weeks to bloom, some can take more depending on the zone, soil and temperature of your area. Another important thing to note is once your flower bulb has grown, maintenance is required to keep it colorful and alive. Aside from watering, mulching and fertilizing, keeping them away from critters is very important as well. Seem like a lot to figure out? Luckily this infographic has everything you need to get started.
