What do I need?

  • Fresh potting soil and hydro grains (for pots or planters)

How do I plant the flower bulbs?
It’s best to plant the flower bulbs as soon as possible after receipt. Plant it directly into the ground, in a flower pot or in a spacious planter. The flower bulb grows best in loose, well-drained soil. A sheltered spot in the sun, semi-shade or in the shadow will do just fine.

The flower bulb should be planted at a depth of 3 times the height of the bulb. For instance, if the bulb is 5 cm high it should be planted at a depth of 15 cm. The distance between small bulbs is 5 - 8 cm and 10 - 15 cm between larger ones.

Planting can be done in spring as well as in autumn. Use a small spade or a special bulb planter for planting. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down. When planted outdoors, flower bulbs are often frost hardy. Cover them with leaves just to be on the safe side.

Planting the flower bulbs in the garden
Find a suitable place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well and divide the flower bulbs across the surface. That can be done in groups of 6 or spread out evenly. Plant the bulb as indicated above, water immediately, and don't walk on the freshly planted area.

How do I plant the flower bulbs in a pot or planter?
Put a layer of hydro grains on the bottom of a decorative pot. Place the flower bulb in the potting soil at the right depth. When planted in a pot, they can be somewhat closer together. Water immediately after planting. Move the pot inside in winter as a potted bulb is not frost hardy.

What do I need?

  • Watering can

How do I care for the flower bulbs?
Water the flower bulbs abundantly in spring and summer. The soil needs to stay thoroughly moist, especially during dry spells. Flower bulbs in a pot or planter can best be put inside in winter. Keep them in a cool and frost-free place.

Replacing a flower bulb
It’s a good idea to plant new flower bulbs every year. After all, they are at their best the first year.

Tulip bulbs that have not yet been planted in the garden are sensitive to frost but once planted out in the garden, they are perfectly hardy.
Tulips planted in pots are more sensitive and will need to be protected in one of the following ways:

  • Store your potted tulips in a frost-free area that doesn't get too warm - they do need the cold.
  • Wrap the pot(s) in bubble wrap for extra protection.
  • If you line the inside of their pot(s) with bubble wrap before adding soil and planting your bulbs, your tulips will already have some protection.

Extra+

Species tulips are available in various shapes, sizes and colours! Over the years, thousands of cultivars have been developed - which means there is a tulip available to suit everyone’s preference.
A short anthology... There are various tulip shapes - common tulips, doubles, lily flowering, parrot tulips, fringed, large flowering and also 'botanical' tulips. They all vary in length of stem - long stemmed are 40-60 cm, mid-length are 20-40 cm and the shortest stemmed tulips are up to 20 cm tall. Then there are multiple flowering tulips. Plus we have to take into account the varrying flowering times - earlies (mid-March) to lates (mid-May).
The mid-length and long stemmed (so, taller than 20 cm) varieties are particularly suited as cut flowers in a pretty vase.
All tulips are classified under Liliaceae.
