How to grow
Tulip bulbs are tolerant of all soil types and both sunny and semi shaded positions. They prefer a well draining soil so they don’t sit in water when it gets very wet. This can damage the roots. If the soil dries out it can effect the growth of the flower. However, don’t water too much over winter. There will be enough moisture in the soil to produce roots. Once the weather starts to warm up, water more regularly.
Once the flower has finished, remove the heads and seed pod. This will allow more energy into the new bulbs. Lift the bulbs in summer and store the bigger bulbs for replanting in autumn. Store in a cool dry place with plenty of air flow.
