Tulip Potting and Planting Tips:

When potting tulips, we try to place ten bulbs per ten inch pot with the flat side to the rim. This will produce a “Full” display after months of cold treatment and forcing.

For indoors, look for Peat Perlite Potting Soil, it will help keep soil moist

Outside, try to plant 5 tulips per square foot for optimum display in the garden.

Plant combinations of bulbs with the tulips to insure a colorful spring flower bed.

Outside soil is fine.
