PLANT OF THE MONTH MAY 2019

Plant Of The Month May 2019: Tulips

Characteristics: Tulips come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes.

Light: full sun or partial shade

Moisture: Tulips look their best when they are grown in loose, crumbly soil that is easy to work and very well drained. The well-drained part is critical. Bulbs can rot in soil that’s too wet.

Plant: Garden designers know that tulips look best when they are planted in groups of 50 or more bulbs. Plan on 12-20 bulbs per square foot. To plant a lot of bulbs fast, dig out the entire planting area to a depth of 6 to 8” and pile the soil on a tarp nearby. Space the bulbs 4 to 5” on center to get a nice, full look. Slide the soil off the tarp to cover the bulbs.
