As a home gardener who resides in the Kansas City area, you may be interested in planting something new on your property. A fine choice of flower that is beautiful and adds a nice splash of color to your front lawn or garden is the tulip. Of course, if this will be your first time planting these lovely blooms, you can benefit from a few helpful tips to get you going.
- Make a list of all the supplies you need for planting and feeding them and do so prior to even opening a gardening catalog when you are ready to order them.
- Once your tulips are planted in the ground, keep an eye on them for the next eight to nine weeks.
- Avoid planting Greiggi tulips as they are extremely difficult to maintain due to being low to the ground. They also tend to easily overcrowd
- Plant your tulips in a location that is very dry. This will ensure they will reappear in the next growing season.
- Administer fertilizer and deadhead your tulips for best results.
