|Tulips are bulbs that produce a wide variety
of colorful flowers in April
and May. They
come in a large range of sizes
from 8 to
36 inches and can be used in
or containers. Tulips are also
as cut flowers for arrangements.
some will come back year after
gardeners treat them as annuals,
them up after they have bloomed
to make way
for other annuals that last all
do best when planted in full
sun and well
drained soil. The following should
when buying tulips bulbs:
Remember that tulips are also attractive
to wildlife. Spray the bulbs with rodent repellent to protect them from squirrels and chipmunks.
- Decide what color will look best in the spot
to be planted. Bright colors such as red
or yellow will stand out in the spring landscape;
white will shine at night.
- Each bulb usually produces one flower. You
will need 6 to 8 bulbs per square foot for
an attractive display.
- Make sure all bulbs are dry and firm. Discard
any that feel mushy.
- Note whether the tulip type is an early,
mid or late season bloomer.
- Plant tulips in the fall before the ground
freezes. Dig the holes 6 to 8 inches deep.
