When to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:

If you want to fill your garden with color next spring, plant bulbs from October to December; Tulip bulbs can actually be planted right up until Christmas and still flower perfectly well in the following spring because they only need a short season of growth.

Where to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:

Tulips perform best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Tulips dislike wetness and require well-drained soil.They grow in most soils but if the soil is very dry, plant the bulbs a day after it has rained.

How to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:

Prepare the site by removing any weeds or stones and use a fork or trowel to loosen and aerate the soil. Use a trowel to dig a hole large enough to fit all of the bulbs that you are planting. For large quantities, you may also dig a large bed. The depth of the hole should be twice the length of the bulb itself. Make sure the pointed end of the bulb is up in the ground.

In warmer climates plant bulbs deeper than 10 inches; the deeper you plant a tulip, the tougher it will be. Tulips planted deeper have thicker stems and fall over less often.

When planting tulips, it is nice to place them close to one another to avoid having them standing by themselves in the spring. This is one flower that always looks better in groups. You can place bulbs as close as six inches away from each other in the ground.

A great tip is to alternate rows of early, mid and late blooming tulips so you may enjoy tulips throughout the entire season!

Tulip as perennial:

Strictly speaking, tulip bulbs cannot be guaranteed to flower for more than one season. Tulips hail from the rugged and windy mountains of Central Asia and need conditions that are not usually found in American gardens. However, to encourage your tulips to bloom for several years in a row, we recommend that you do the following:

  • Plant your bulbs deep (8-10 inches). Deep planting helps to prevent the bulb from splitting up into many small, non-flowering bulbs.
  • Fertilize the bulbs when the foliage pushes through the soil in spring. We recommend a general low-nitrogen organic fertilizer.
  • Remove spent flowers as soon as the bulbs finish blooming. Snapping off the top of the flower stem encourages the plant to send energy into bulb growth rather than seed production.
  • Allow the foliage to wither completely before you remove it.
  • Avoid summer irrigation. Tulips prefer to be dry during their dormancy.

Almost all Darwin Hybrid Tulips have proven to be good perennial so they would be your best bet if you are looking for years of colorful blooms.

Shipping Season: Fall

Pre-ordered Tulip Bulbs are shipped at the proper planting time for your zone. Enter your USDA ZIP code above the map to find your zone.

Fall-planted bulbs are cold hardy and can be planted anytime during the Fall and early Winter, even after a frost.

Since all of our bulbs are untreated, any surface mold is natural and will not impact the viability of the bulbs, as long as they are still firm to the touch. Additionally, Tulips may shed their “tunics” (brown papery covering) due to time in transit; this is normal and acceptable.
