How to Plant Mexican Tuberose
When to Plant Tuberose Bulbs
Plant your Tuberose Bulbs in the Spring after the danger of the last frost has passed. Mexican Tuberose thrives in hot, sunny climates so it can't tolerate frost.
Where to Plant Tuberose Bulbs
Plant your Tuberose Bulbs in a location that has well draining soil. After a hard rain, it shouldn't have standing puddles after a few hours. If the soil doesn't drain well, you can amend it with organic material like compost. Mexican Tuberoses do best in full sun.
How to Plant Tuberose Bulbs
Plant your Tuberose Bulbs 2-4 inches deep. If you want concentrated areas of Tuberoses, leave 8 to 10 inches between your bulbs.
How to Care for Mexican Tuberose
Tuberoses are easy to grow and maintain - simply keep an eye on when they might need watering. We recommend around 1 inch of water per week if there aren't regular rains. Tuberose flowers are wonderfully scented and can be cut for flower arrangements. Don't cut your foliage off at the end of the season - let it yellow so the plant can still receive nutrients.
