Tulips are easily cultivable, so they also inherited so much popularity, but most remember about them only in the spring, when it is too late to plant bulbs. In the October tulip growers are forcefully busy in the garden with tulip planting.
Used to be early, medium and late blooming tulips, as well as a wide range of colors - white, yellow, pink, red, black, purple, orange, marl and on, and on, but planting the laws of all varieties are same. But the tulip planting really has not missed - bulbs can be planted until the soil is not frozen.
One of the first tips refers to the place where to plant tulips. One most common mistake occurs - bulb planting in moist soil. The fact that tulips bloom in spring after snowmelt does not necessarily mean that the moist soil is preferred. As a favorable place the breeder mentions sandy soil, and definitely not clay. Thankful is very flat, sunny, few shaded areas with a slight slope in the eastern or south-easterly direction. You can also use sloping places directed southward, but in the sunny, hot weather will have to pay more attention to careful watering.
Bulbs are to be buried at depth 10-15 centimeters, but it is best to plant them at a depth of three bulbs, because they used to be both larger and smaller. If you want to make a fuller tulip planting, bulbs can be planted with a spacing of 10 inches, but if want a thin flowerbed, bulbs should be planted with larger distances.
Many growers face with rodents, which had already eaten up planted bulbs until spring, in such cases, we recommend to try to plant bulbs in flower baskets or boxes.
