what depth to plant bulbs?

When planting tulip and daffodil bulbs in the same planter should one type of bulb be planted deeper than the other?



as a general rule bulbs should be planted at at least twice the depth of the bulb, if that's any help.

This normally means the daffs are planted deeper than the tulips

Rule of thumb is to plant or sow to the depth of 4 times the size of the bulb or seed.
