Seasons and planting

Jan Feb March April May June July Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec

The soil needed by tulips is well-draining and should contain humus to retain moisture. Once planted, apply a thick mulch to protect the bulbs from the sun. When planting, the bulb should be at a depth of 5cm and the spacing between the plants should be 8cm. The lowest temperature that the tulip can tolerate is -5°C.
Water the tulips every three days and ensure you water them deeply so that it can reach the tulips roots. The roots must not dry out. Tulips in South Africa should be treated as annual flowers and bought each season as they cannot withstand the warmer climate.
