If the sun warms the soil in the container too early, the bulb will send up shoot and flower before an adequate root system has developed.How to Plant Tulip BulbsMost gardeners plant their bulbs in November in full sun.

This lets sap in the foliage return to the bulb, where it provides added strength for next year.How to Grow and Care for TulipsTulips are very easy to grow, especially when considering how much beauty they add to their surroundings and how much joy they bring to people.
