Sowing, Seeds, Planting October - December
Care Tips Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in � this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down � this allows the bulb to store more food and increases the chances of good flowering the following year.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper to hold the stems ram-rod straight and leave to drink for at least 3 hours � or overnight. This helps keep the stems straight, but tulips do continue to grow after picking so curves may appear.
