Spring is my favorite season and so are tulips. Of course, you can buy tulips and place them in your vase to cheer up your home, but it’s even better if you plant them in your garden. I did this and I truly love my garden, and now I wait for fall to come and plant some other tulip bulbs. And I want to share with you the whole process of planting tulip bulbs, if you love them as much as I do.
First of all, you must know that tulip bulbs are planted in autumn before cold weather appears. Of course you can buy them right now, and to keep them in optimal conditions, all you have to do is take care to keep them in a dry, cool place until the right time. In addition, you can choose from a lot of varieties of tulips, which are more colorful and with a richer corolla.
When you are buying the tulips bulbs, you have to make sure they don’t show signs of moisture and are not fragile at touch.
Although these flowers are not demanding when it comes to care, you have to look for a sunny place or a slightly shaded and medium-moist soil. So if the soil in your garden is drier, wait for a rainy day and then plant the bulbs. Of course, before that, you must remove all the weeds and stones from that lot.
Next, dig a few deep holes about 20 cm at a distance of 10-15 cm from each other, then place the bulbs with the tip up. Cover the holes with soil and then wet the soil. If the weather is dry, you can wet the batch of earth, but, otherwise, let nature and rainfall do their job. From now on, all you have to do is wait spring to come, because the tulips bulbs show their fruit.
You must know that tulips are perennial flowers, so in the coming years you will enjoy these wonderful flowers again, this if you don’t want another tulip species like I do. In addition, you can plant bulbs in tulips and in pots if you have a sufficiently large container so as to provide them with the necessary space.
Tulip bulbs are easy to plant and you will definitely be delighted when you see the result of your work, so I suggest you try it too!
