It is important to plant bulbs at the correct depth and the right way up. As a general rule they should be planted at about twice their own depth for the larger bulbs, the very small bulbs require about 5 cm of soil above them.
Most bulbs should be planted when they are dormant ideally from mid August to early October for spring flowering.
