Key Planting Tips
Plant in full sun, 6” inches deep with the tip pointing up. Space each bulb 4-6” apart. They will tolerate some shade.
Tulips have everything they need to get started, but you can place a teaspoon of bone meal in the soil before planting and use a low nitrogen fertilizer when the first leaves appear in Spring.
Our bulbs will ship to you in mid September to mid October.
