Soil & Postion:
Tulips will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade. Remove flower heads as they begin to fade. Avoid planting repeatedly in the same location.
Best lifted when the leaves fade. Clean and store until Autumn when they can be replanted. Do not keep the small of shoots as they will not flower.
Display in groups. Protect newly planted bulbs from mice and squirrels.
