    When do I plant Tulip bulbs?

    Tulip bulbs will be shipped to you from the middle of September once we have received them at our warehouse. The best time to plant tulips is in Autumn, but you can plant as late as January. Tulip bulbs need a spell of 6 weeks of cold weather to activate them for spring.

    How do I plant Tulip bulbs?

    Tulip bulbs start with a good source of moisture and nutrients stored within them, so you don’t need to prepare them in any way. To get the best results, plant them in moist soil during autumn, to activate the growth of the roots before winter.

    Tulips can be planted in a sunny position or semi-shade, with well-drained slightly acidic or neutral soil. The sun will make the tulip flowers open very wide, but they close again overnight. Taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid damage.

    Plant tulip bulbs 10-15cm deep in well-draining soil. Place 5-10cm apart to stop the roots competing and the foliage getting cramped. They produce a lot of roots that don’t like to sit in water, but once they start growing make sure they don’t dry out. If planting in pots, make sure they have good drainage and lots of room for the roots to develop, but be careful not to let them dry out.

    How do I store tulip bulbs?

    Once your Tulips have bloomed you can deadhead the flowers but do not remove the leaves. These will ensure the bulbs are able to replenish the energy needed to bloom again the following year.

    Tulip bulbs can be kept in the ground all year round, but you may find that they don’t put on as much of a display as the previous year.

    Once the foliage has yellowed and died back, it can be removed, then carefully dig the tulip bulbs up. Clean the soil off and let the bulbs dry. Discard any damaged ones. Store tulip bulbs in nets or paper bags, but make sure you label them. Keep in a cool dark place ready to replant in the Autumn. You can read more about why and how you should lift tulip bulbs.
