The tulip is the national flower of Turkey, Kazakhstan, and the Netherlands. Different colors represent different flower languages. Tulips symbolize beauty and are the most popular flowers in the world.
Tulips are produced in the Mediterranean coast and Central Asia, and are influenced by the Mediterranean climate, forming a climate suitable for warm and humid winters and cool and dry summers.
Today I will talk about how to grow tulips.
1. Planting time
The flowering period of tulips is in April and May each year, so tulips are generally planted in autumn, and can be planted from September to November.
2. Select the seed ball
To choose a bulb with a diameter of more than 4 cm and a circumference of more than 12 cm, check whether the root disc is damaged. Note that the bulbs must be treated at low temperature, keep the temperature between 5 and 9 degrees for refrigeration, and then take them out for planting after about two months.
3. Choose the right soil
Tulip pots to ensure good ventilation. The best soil for growing tulips is deep and loose. To ensure soil fertility, fertile soil such as peat soil can be used.
The prepared culture soil must be sterilized at high temperature before use. Soil can be sterilized by drying it in the sun for a few hours.
Tulips like to grow in a cool environment and are more afraid of high temperatures. Keep the temperature at 12-15 degrees during the seedling stage and 18-25 degrees indoors when the plants grow leaves.
In winter, it will grow normally if it is maintained above 8 degrees, and it has strong cold resistance and can withstand low temperatures of minus 14 degrees.
6. Plant tulip bulbs
Before planting tulips, you can give the soil a little water to moisten the soil before planting the bulbs. After planting, spread another layer of soil around the bulbs. Seeds should be placed in a cool, ventilated environment, watered regularly, and maintained.
After the tulips have finished blooming, cut off the remaining flowers in time, not the leaves.
Tulips are world famous flowers with many colors. The stocky varieties are perfect for spring flower beds and are very pretty.
Tall-stemmed varieties are suitable for cut flowers or in flower borders, and can also be planted on the edge of grass. Short to medium varieties are suitable for potted plants, ornamental gardens, indoors and cut flowers.
