A few planting tips:

  • Planting Season is September to November.
    • Earlier planting provides better rooting.
    • Bulbs should be planted at least 6 weeks prior to 1st permanent frost.
  • Plant in well-drained soil, about 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) deep
  • Supplement with fertilizer or compost in  fall during rooting period.
    Bone meal is a good fertilizer for tulip bulbs.
  • Consider covering with mulch to protect from early spring thawing and freezing.
  • If left for 6 weeks after they have bloomed in the spring, the tulips will bloom again the following year
  • Have fun gardening and enjoy your beautiful locally-grown tulips
