Plant Inspiration: Tulips
Photo by Carlin
It’s officially spring which means a plethora or flowers are blossoming. One of our favorite perennials are the tulips as you might be seeing them pop up all over. There are so many types of tulips, even ones that can be forced grown indoors, too. Here are some tips to care for your tulips. Tulips grow in any well-drained soil. They prefer full sun to thrive, but you can often be successful in partial shade if you choose early bulbs. The amount of spring sun is the most important. After the tulips bloom, flower stems should be removed when the bloom has faded to encourage bulb development instead of seed development. Be sure to allow the leaves to grow until they naturally wither in June before you remove the foliage. More info via Bachman’s.
