To successfully grow tulips in your home garden the gardeners of the National Capital Commission offer these tips:

Choosing a site

  • Choose a site that receives full sun or bright light in spring.
  • Soil with good drainage is absolutely essential. 
  • Perennials make excellent companion plants for bulbs and help to mask yellowing bulb foliage. 
  • Summer annuals can be planted right over top of tulip bulbs, after tulip foliage has died back.
