Knowing when to plant tulips (and other bulbs) can make or break your spring garden. The most important step is considering your USDA hardiness zone. You can find that out here.
There is a simple way to think about this. Zones 7 or lower should plant in the fall before the first frost date. Zones 8 or higher should plant in late fall or early winter. Think December and January. In this scenario, you’ll also want to consider keeping bulbs in a cool (40-45°F) environment for up to 10 weeks before planting.
In northern regions, full sun is the most optimal location. In southern regions, consider areas that receive partial sun as well. This will help with overheating. Well-drained soil is best. If your soil is a bit sandy or clay-based then adding compost will aid in creating nice, full blooms. If you have tested the pH of your soil, then a pH between 6-7 is ideal.
