How Many Flower Bulbs Do I Need?

Is one of the most frequent questions that we hear from our customers. If you're also trying to figure this out, you're not alone! So, we created an easy calculator to find out how many bulbs you need for your gardening project. You can find the calculator on every product page. 

Fortunately, it's actually a simple calculation. For example: if you are planting tulips and you have 7 square feet of planting space, multiply that by 5 (# of tulip bulbs per square foot) and you will know that you will need to plant 35 tulip bulbs.

If you want to know how many bulbs you need per variety, you can check this number in the details of every variety. These details are listed under every product image.

Still stuck? Have an unusual planting space that is difficult to calculate?
