Tulips

 

Tulips are available in most colors, except blue, from the purest white to the deepest purple, with many glorious shades of yellow, red and crimson in between. Many of the dwarf tulips also have attractively marked leaves.

Most tulips love fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soils and a place in sun and with shelter. Many tulips are best regarded as annual bedding plants, being lifted after flowering and replanted until they have died down. The bulbs seldom flower well in the second year but if replanted in mid autumn may reach flowering size again within two years.

Plant now tulip bulbs, in mid autumn, setting them up to 15-20 cm deep where you want them to naturalized.

Naturalizing Bulbs

One of the most effective and easiest way to grow bulbs is to plant them in a natural setting where they can be left undisturbed to spread and multiply. The bulbs will flower year after year with the minimum of maintenance, adding interest to otherwise dull areas. Bulbs can be naturalized in lawns, in borders or under the canopy of trees.
