As soon as possible after receiving the tulip bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance is about 10 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the tulips one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more flower bulbs planted, the greater effect the flowers will have. Plant the tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs, or divide about 25 to 50 flower bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.
The flowers of these tulips are at their best the first year after planting. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. Tulips grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun. To protect the flower bulbs grown in a pot from frost, move the pot to a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water sufficiently during dry periods.
