TIPS FOR PLANTING TULIPS, HYACINTHS AND CROCUS

Planting flowerbulbs is not as easy as it looks. Ruigrok Flowerbulbs only deals in genuine flowerbulbs of the highest quality and size. We stand 100% by our products and give you tips for planting tulips, hyacinths and crocus.

  1. Recommend planting times tulips, hyacinths and crocus

You may plant them later than the recommended planting time, as long as it is prior to the first frost.  

  1. Planting depth and distance

General rule is that the flowerbulbs (tulips, hyacinths, crocus, etc.) should be planted at a depth double their height. Larger tulips, hyacinths and crocus must be planted in an upright position in the planting hole. Smaller flowerbulbs can be scattered.

  1. Soil conditions of tulips, hyacinths and crocus

No particular soil is required for planting flowerbulbs, as long it is well-drained. For best results, loosen the soil around 10” deep before planting and add some mulch, if the structure needs loosening. After planting you may add a slow acting fertilizer.

  1. Choosing the right combination of flowerbulbs

The options for spring flowerbulbs are vast and it’s possible to achieve many different effects. In a successful flowerbulb combination both colors and flower shapes are balanced. A classic flowerbulb planting consists of at least 6 flowerbulbs (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths & crocus) per square foot.

  1. Perennializing tulips

Many bulbs are perennial and can be left in the ground to return for the years following. You will find perennial types highlighted in the schedule in our catalog. Under the right circumstances the flowerbulbs will soon multiply and come back the following years, as if they have always been a part of the landscape.
