Tulip bulbs are planted in the fall, between September and Late November.
The best time is November, as their is less chance of fungal attacks in cool soil.
Buy the largest bulbs in single colors for the best results and plant in groups of 5 or seven.
Take out a hole around six inches deep and a foot wide. Space out the bulbs and cover over.
As bulbs are food stores, there is no need to add any special bulb food.
