    Planting notes:

    • Soil temperatures must be 55 F or below to ensure proper root development
    • The optimal planting time is when night-time temperatures hit 40-50 F
    • The ideal soil pH level for bulbs is between 6 and 7
    • Most bulbs require a minimum cold frame of 6 weeks to root properly
      Tulips in particular need 12 to 16 weeks in the dark with a sustained soil temperature below 50° F

    • Plant bulbs 2 to 4 inches deep, pointy end up. Amend with compost and/or bone meal if your soil needs a little help. Mulch well for winter, and watch for leaf emergence in spring and peel back mulch to help if needed, bulbs will begin flowering the following fall.
