Red tulip bulb
Red tulips are bright, colourful, beautiful flowers. Depending on the variety, they can grow tall or remain short. They can be planted individually, in pots or in groups, or arranged in flower beds. They require sunlight and well-drained soil.
When to plant tulips
As for all spring-flowering bulbs, the best time for planting is from September until the end of December. The tulip needs substantial sunlight. Its flowers typically bloom at the beginning of spring, when temperatures are still temperate and the hours of sunlight are increasing. For tulip cultivation, well-drained soil is essential. When planted in a pot, packaged soil can be used. When planted in a flower bed, the soil should be tilled beforehand.
How to plant tulips
- Trim the bulbs to a length of 10 cm.
- Maintain a distance equal to 10-12cm between each flower. Plant the bulb with the tip facing upwards.
- Cover and slightly wet the soil (only if the ground is dry).
