How to plant lily flowered tulip bulbs

To ensure optimal growth, it's important to plant tulip bulbs in the best possible condition for them to thrive, these include:

 

  • Tulip bulbs prefer fertile, well-drained soil
  • Wet soggy soil can cause the bulbs to rot so lightening your soil with a little sand and gravel will do your bulbs the world of good.
  • For sandy soils, it is advisable to add some organic matter.
  • Tulips prefer neutral to alkaline soil and adding chicken pellets can improve the nutrient balance.
  • Tulip bulbs should be planted from late October to December.
  • Tulips need to be in the cold ground for at least 10 weeks to flower at their best.
  • Plant your bulbs around 15 cm deep and 5 to 15 cm apart (allow for around 75 to 100 bulbs per square meter).
  • Once the shoots are around 15cm high use a fertiliser such as liquid seaweed every couple of weeks, stop fertilising when the flower buds start to colour.

FAQs

When is the best time to plant Lily Flowered Tulips?

Lily Flowered Tulips should be planted in the autumn, ideally when the temperatures have cooled but well before the ground freezes. This timing allows the bulbs to establish roots before the winter, setting them up for a vibrant spring bloom.

How deep should I plant Lily Flowered Tulip bulbs?

Tulip bulbs should be planted about three times their height in depth. For most bulbs, this means planting them approximately 15cm deep, with the pointed end facing upwards. This depth helps protect them from harsh weather conditions and provides stability as they grow.

Can Lily Flowered Tulips be grown in containers?

Yes, Lily Flowered Tulips are excellent for container gardening. Ensure you use good draining soil and containers with adequate drainage holes. Place the containers in a spot that receives ample sunlight to encourage healthy growth.

How do I care for Lily Flowered Tulips after they bloom?

After blooming, it’s important to let the foliage of Lily Flowered Tulips die back naturally. This process allows the bulbs to store energy for the next growing season. Remove only the dead flowers and keep watering the plant until the leaves are yellow and wither, then reduce watering.

What color varieties are available for Lily Flowered Tulips?

Lily Flowered Tulips are available in a stunning array of colours, including classic shades like deep red, bright yellow, and pure white, as well as unique blends and patterns featuring pink, purple, and orange hues. Their elegant, fluted petals make each colour variety stand out beautifully in garden settings or floral arrangements.
