Bulb Pointers

Martha Stewart Living, November 2006

While some bulbs declare which way they should be planted (tulips, for example, have a distinct point on top), others leave you guessing. If you find yourself with a handful of bulbs and no indicators of which way is up, plant them on their sides (as pictured in right hand). The blooms will find their way to the surface as the roots burrow below.
