How To: Distinguish different types of bulbs

Distinguish different types of bulbs

In this tutorial, Scott Atkinson shows us how to identify different types of bulbs. Common types of bulbs are: tulip, daffodil and lily. These are most easily identified but there are many that appear in flowers. A core looks similar to a bulb but it is a solid tissue and doesn't have an leaves, just a hard core with a protective covering. There is also tubers which are what potatoes and other foods grow from. These cause eyes to form and create different types of things to grow. You will now be able to identify different types of bulbs when you are planting your garden and you can take care of them the best you can!

Hi, I'm just wondering if you can tell me the difference in the look of an amaryllis and a daffodil bulb. A lady gave me a bucket full of bulbs and I already had planted a few Amaryllis bulb so I know what they look like but I have no idea exactly what these bulbs are but I know that they look like daffodils and they look like amaryllis. So thank you for any help because amaryllis gets planted different than daffodil
