Growing Tulips

One of the most beautiful springtime flowers is the tulip. Tulips are easy to grow. You only need to have a bit of space to plant the bulbs in the fall. They will bloom in spring:)


Star planting your tulips in October or early November.Dig a new tulip bed in a sunny location about a foot deep. Add some fertilizer into the soil.Plant the tulip bulbs about one to two inches below the ground. Make sure the root portion of the bulb is pointing down. Space the tulips about six inches apart.Cut the tulips for indoor use if you like. Remove tulip heads from the plants as soon as they begin to fade. Leave the green stems Once the foliage dies, you can cut it back as well.
