PLANT CARE ( Tulips )
|They require 12 to 14 weeks of temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.|
|Tulips will grow in full sun or partial shade, though they do best with plenty of sunlight, at least six hours per day.|
|Humidity should be controlled at all times and should not be more than 75% during the dry storage.|
|Water the bulbs thoroughly immediately after you plant them, but after this withhold watering except during extended dry spells.|
Tulips are sometimes grown as annuals, especially the hybrid varieties. In this case, you can dig up and discard the bulbs after blooming is complete, then plant summer flowers in their place. In warmer climates, this is the typical way to grow Tulips by purchasing pre-chilled bulbs from commercial sellers and planting them in early spring. Since the bulbs will not naturally chill over the winter, you have to start with new bulbs each spring. Add some compost, bone meal, or granular fertilizer to the planting hole when you plant the tulip bulbs. Feed them again the following spring, when they sprout again. Other than this, no additional feeding is necessary. When growing tulips as perennials, remove the flower stalks immediately after they flower to prevent the plants from producing seed pods, which drains the bulb’s energy and shortens its life. Leave the foliage in place until it turns yellow in mid-to-late summer. This helps replenish the bulb’s energy.
