Notes: Many bulbs require deep planting. Indeed, the most common mistake made is planting at an incorrect depth. Water in newly planted bulbs to eliminate air pockets. Apply a mulch to preserve moisture and reduce weeds. The taller the flower spikes, the deeper the mulch — 2 or 3 in. for taller bulbs, about 1 in. (2.5 cm) for shorter ones. Planted bulbs require little attention until new growth appears above the soil. At that time, apply low dose of an NPK fertilizer (10–10–10). In rainy climates, the fertilizer will be washed into the soil; in dry climates, water it in. Give a second feeding three or four weeks after the first one and once just before the first bloom appears. Alstroemeria stops producing flowers if they get too hot.
