How to grow Tulips

How to grow Tulips

Learn how to grow Tulips with our easy step by step guides. Tulips are best planted in autumn in a sunny and well drained position that will not get water logged over the winter months or too dry in summer. They can also be planted in containers & pots on balcanies etc.

Tulips are very easy to grow, follow our guide below.

How to grow Tulips

  • Plant twice the depth of the height of the bulb. For example if the bulb is 5 cm long the bottom of the bulb needs to be planted 10 cm below the top of the soil.
  • After flowering occurs, let the leaves die down naturally and do not be tempted to cut them back because they look untidy.
  • The leaves provide food for the bulbs next flowering season.
  • Depending on the species, tulip plants can grow as short as 10 cm or as high as 71 cm.

Tulip growing tips:

  • Bulb fertiliser can be applied to existing tulips in autumn to ensure they have enough nutrients to get through the winter and to provide you with plentiful blooms.
  • Tulips look great when planted in clusters amongst other plants and bulbs in front of the garden as they have quite short stems.

Most tulips produce only one flower per stem, but a few species bear multiple flowers on their scapes. Some modern varieties display multicoloured patterns, resulting from breeding selection for a genetic mutation.

Tulip flowers grab our attention their majestic and perfectly formed blooms. Talk to any florist and they will tell you that tulips are one of the most popular blooms for bouquets.
