Care: Amend soil with compost before planting tulips. Feed with a granular flower bulb fertilizer at planting time or in the spring when the leaves emerge. Cut back spent flowers and allow foliage to die back naturally before removing it (4-6 weeks after flowering). In southern climates, with mild winters the bulbs will need to have a chill period for 6-12 weeks before planting. Tulips do not like a lot of heat and tend to bloom longer when planted in a site with morning sun rather than just afternoon sun.
