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).

Tulips do not like a lot of heat so choose a planting site with morning sun rather than afternoon sun.
