How to grow

Timing is crucial on when to plant tulip bulbs in Australia. Aim to plant your tulips in late autumn to early winter, ideally around May to July, depending on your location and climate. Planting at the right time allows tulip bulbs to establish their roots and set their top growth before the onset of warmer weather. This helps to ensure better growth and flowering in spring. When the time is right, tulip bulbs should be planted in a well-drained soil that is enriched with organic matter. Plant the bulbs in late autumn, about 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Make sure to plant bulbs with the pointed end facing upwards, and about 10-15cm deep. The bulbs should be spaced about 10-15cm apart to allow for proper growth and development. Mark bulbs at planting to avoid accidental damage.
