I HAVE 5 BULBS SHOULD THEY BE PLANTED TOGETHER OR SEPERATELY

Nectaroscordum belong to the Allium family, and are ideal for naturalising, so best planted in a group. Take care with siting though, as if placed in full sun they tend to become invasive.

My rule of thumb is to plant a bulb deeper for the large bulbs and more shallow for the small ones. I would guess that you should plant a bulb 4 times it's diameter.

i tend to put them in groups of 3 or 5. they do multiply well. I have mine in semi shade. they are buried about 6" deep.
