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.
