    Planting Tulip Bulbs - How to Plant Tulip Bulbs


    When to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:


    If you want to fill your garden with color next spring, plant bulbs from October to December; Tulip bulbs can actually be planted right up until Christmas and still flower perfectly well in the following spring because they only need a short season of growth.


    Where to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:


    Tulips perform best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Tulips dislike wetness and require well-drained soil.They grow in most soils but if the soil is very dry, plant the bulbs a day after it has rained.


    How to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:


    Prepare the site by removing any weeds or stones and use a fork or trowel to loosen and aerate the soil. Use a trowel to dig a hole large enough to fit all of the bulbs that you are planting. For large quantities, you may also dig a large bed. The depth of the hole should be twice the length of the bulb itself. Make sure the pointed end of the bulb is up in the ground.


    In warmer climates plant bulbs deeper than 10 inches; the deeper you plant a tulip, the tougher it will be. Tulips planted deeper have thicker stems and fall over less often.


    When planting tulips, it is nice to place them close to one another to avoid having them standing by themselves in the spring. This is one flower that always looks better in groups. You can place bulbs as close as six inches away from each other in the ground.


    A great tip is to alternate rows of early, mid and late blooming tulips so you may enjoy tulips throughout the entire season!


    Tulip as perennial:


    Strictly speaking, tulip bulbs cannot be guaranteed to flower for more than one season. Tulips hail from the rugged and windy mountains of Central Asia and need conditions that are not usually found in American gardens. However, to encourage your tulips to bloom for several years in a row, we recommend that you do the following:


    • Plant your bulbs deep (8-10 inches). Deep planting helps to prevent the bulb from splitting up into many small, non-flowering bulbs.


    • Fertilize the bulbs when the foliage pushes through the soil in spring. We recommend a general low-nitrogen organic fertilizer.


    • Remove spent flowers as soon as the bulbs finish blooming. Snapping off the top of the flower stem encourages the plant to send energy into bulb growth rather than seed production.


    • Allow the foliage to wither completely before you remove it.


    • Avoid summer irrigation. Tulips prefer to be dry during their dormancy.


    Almost all Darwin Hybrid Tulips have proven to be good perennial so they would be your best bet if you are looking for years of colorful blooms.

Wow, wow, wow.

These tulips are gorgeous. Everyone commented on them because the color is splendid. I had a lot of blooms from my bulbs my first year and I even planted very late (January in Indiana).

If you love tulips you need some Queen of the Night to grace your garden.

They Came Up

I had a 90% success rate. Lost 1 bulb, but this may have been due to improper postal handling.

Each of the large bulbs actually had very small starts budding off of them, so I went ahead and popped those off and planted them relatively shallow; made up for my lost bulb with 4-5 more plants than expected.
