Tulip Time

It’s tulip planting time. November and December are the best months to plant tulip bulbs. Plant in any soil, as long as it doesn’t get waterlogged. In pots, make sure there is good drainage. To be extra sure, throw in some horticultural grit under the bulb. Plant at least twice the bulb’s width apart, at a depth of two or three times the bulb’s height, in a sunny position. Flowers March to May. Lift when the foliage dies back. Store in a cool, dry place until the following November and replant. Art of the tulip…
