    When do I plant Tulip bulbs?

    Tulip bulbs will be shipped to you from the middle of September once we have received the bulbs. The optimum time to plant tulips is in Autumn, when the soil has cooled down from October to December, but you can plant as late as January. Tulip bulbs need a spell of 6 weeks of cold weather to activate them into flowering in spring.

    How do to plant your Tulip Sanne bulbs?

    Tulip bulbs don’t need to be prepared in any way prior to planting. Plant your Tulip Sanne bulbs 12cm deep in well-draining soil and around 10cm apart. They 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. Tulip bulbs 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. Pots can dry out quite quickly so a loam soil is often best.

    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 gather and store 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.
