When to Plant Tulip Bulbs?

Plant Tulips in fall when temperatures are in the 60's or lower during the day.

Tulips require 12-16 weeks of consistently cold temperatures (50's during the day or lower) in order to produce a flower bud in spring.

How to Plant Tulip Bulbs?

Plant tulip bulbs in well-drained soil. Tulips do not like wet soil, if water pools in the area they are planted add compost to help improve drainage.

Plant Tulip bulbs 6-8" deep. The pointed end of the bulb should be facing the sky.

Place the soil that was removed from the planting hole over the Tulips. Water the bulbs in after the initial planting. Avoid watering after the planting as they prefer to be dry in winter.

Bouquet Planting Tulips

For a full bouquet appearance plant 5 bulbs per one 10-12" wide planting hole. The bulbs can be planted 1-2" from each other in this larger hole.

Planting Tulips in Pots

Tulips can be planted in pots in temperate climates that do not experience many freeze and thaw cycles. If tulips are planted in pots in above ground containers in a climate that has varying winter temperatures the pots will need to be insulated to protect the bulbs from the effects of the freezing and thawing that may occur.

What to do when your Tulips are done blooming?

The flower stems can be removed once the blooms have faded. Keep the leaves intact until they yellow, wither and can easily be removed from the soil. The leaves gather energy from the sun after the blooms fade to provide energy for the next seasons blooms. If possible, keep the bulbs dry during summer, as they prefer dry conditions when dormant.

Needed an additional early blooming tulip for our beds. Bulbs arrived large and perfect. No signs of age, mold or decay whatsoever. Fingers crossed for springtime!

Pros:
  • Long Stems and Leaves
  • Beautiful Colors
  • Multiple Blooms
Cons:
These grew nice long leaves and stems, with big delicate blooms. They kept their shape for a few days and then opened up or started to lose petals -- but there are more blooms coming (some put up multiples) so they're blooming for a longer period of time as new ones replace the old ones. I planted these all in one spot and it's a nicely filled-in patch of color and greens.

  • Wish I would have ordered more
I’m going to have a hard time waiting to see what these do in the spring. I absolutely rate these at the top of my list. The bulbs were plump and in good shape. Packaging and shipping was great.

Planted these last fall along with Daydream Tulip Darwin Hybrid Tulips, Purple Flag Triumph Tulips and Mixed Daffodils and Narcissi. They sprouted up beautifully in March and then started blooming 2nd week of April (I'm in Seattle/Zone 8 for reference) and blend beautifully with the daffodils. We've had a dry/sunny early spring so far and these have really performed. The purple tulips started blooming a week later and now the Daydream orange tulips are budding nicely. Very pleased with purchase, I've gotten many compliments from neighbors.
