Bulbs come in all sizes, from tiny snowdrop bulbs to the large Alliums.
Planting too shallow can cause bulbs, particularly Daffodils, to come up" blind" which means without flowers. A good rule of thumb when planting bulbs is always to plant them at least 3x the depth of the bulb. Looking at the bulbs in the image, the large white ones are Hyacinth and all the round ones are Daffodils.
It is clear from this that Hyacinths will need to be planted deeper than Daffodil bulbs, and the smaller Daffodils bulbs, such as Tete at Tete, not so deep. If you are planting a few, it is handy to measure on a bamboo cane the 3x depth, and then each time you dig a hole put the cane in to check the depth and then plant.
Remember if you are planting in containers, to plant to the correct depth and for the first year it is not necessary to use fresh compost. You can use old compost for the first year of planting- more information about this.
