Depending on what kind of bulbs they are, whether the roots are up or down can be less of an issue than the care they received before they were planted. Some bulbs require a period of dormancy before being planted, some are more picky about temperature....A general rule of thumb is that the more "pointy" end should be up and the directions on the packaging or from your local nursery should be followed.
