Cultural Notes: Tulips are best suited to cooler temperate regions. In order to get the best outcome in warmer areas you can stimulate a cold winter by storing them in the fridge crisper for 4-6 weeks before planting in autumn. Plant bulbs in well drained soil at a depth of between 2 to 3 times the bulb depth. Apply a slow release organic fertiliser at planting then again after flowering. After flowering remove spent bloom and allow foliage to naturally brown off, once this has processed you can lift bulbs to be stored in a cool dark place until next planting season. This process is advised in warm climates.
