Cultivate soils to a depth of 15-20cms and plant bulbs 15cms deep in soils that are well drained. In heavier soils add grit and humus matter during cultivation to help with drainage and plant bulbs slightly shallower. In lighter soils ensure they have plenty of humus matter which will provide food and also retain water. They will benefit from using bulb starter when first planting. Feed during the leaf and flower stage to ensure the bulbs are fully nourished to provide the following years growth. Ideal foods are well rotted humus matter, Bone meal and tomato food as they contain high levels of phosphate and potash.
Tip: Do not cut off or tie up the leaves as this will not allow the bulbs to take in nutrients for the following years growth. Work really well when grown with mid season tulips such as fosteriana tulips
