Time to Plant the Tulips
Updated: Dec 12, 2022
We were recently gifted some lovely pots by one of our customers. So today, myself and my daughter pulled out the old hostas (which have now been planted else where) and began cleaning up the pots.
Typically, during November it is a great time to get planting your spring bulbs. However, it is best to do this after the first frosts (as that kills off any potential bugs and bacteria which may cause damage). We haven't actually had a frost yet, at least not in South East Wales.
However this should not be a problem for my tulips as they have been planted in fresh new soil anyway.
The basics are as follows:
clean your pots
add fresh soil/compost
plant your bulbs around 10cm into the soil
and 10cm apart
In each pot I planted a mixture of tulips that will flower in March and April and those that will flower in May. So we should get a good display which will last a couple of months.
When they pop up, I'll post some photos to our Instagram page so you can see how they turned out. Have you planted any bulbs yet or are you going to wait until the frost arrives?
