It is not so difficult to grow tulips. Here are tips on how to succeed in the best way.
The tulip bulbs should look big and healthy. The larger the bulbs, the more powerful flowering. But the size varies not only with the quality but also between different tulips. Wild species can, however, have bulbs that are not larger than a few centimeters.
Tip: If you want to be sure that you get abundant recurring tulips that also spread, you should choose botanical tulips.
Preferably plant the tulip bulbs in a sunny place with well-drained, rich and nutrient-rich soil. Tulips can be grown throughout the country, as long as the soil is not too compact, wet and cold. Tulips can be planted later than most other spring bulbs. It goes well throughout the autumn as long as it is possible to dig in the ground. But in order for them to take root, they should be planted at least before Christmas.
1. Dig a pit with a small shovel or an onion iron.
2. Put the onion with the pointed part up, so that the root cake at the bottom comes down. Put it three times as deep as it is high, and at 15 cm intervals.
3. Water and fertilize with bone meal in connection with planting.
Give organic fertilizer and blood meal when the bulbs are on their way up in the spring. Feel free to do it again one more time around midsummer. It gives them a better start for next year.
After flowering, the leaves should wither in peace and quiet, so that the nutrients return to the bulb. Feel free to break off the flower stalk when the lime leaves have fallen off. Forming seeds otherwise takes an unnecessary amount of energy from the onion.
Good luck with tulips!
