- Tulips tend to decline through the years and many gardeners renew plantings annually. They will last longer when they are planted more deeply as long as the soil is well-drained.
- Tulips make great cut flowers, but be careful, they grow once the cut flowers are in water. Add a penny to the water in your vase to help prevent them from growing taller.
- Flower bulbs also require watering after blooming, while the foliage is ripening. Water weekly if conditions are dry.
- In spring after flowering, do not cut the foliage off; the foliage is part of the perennial growth cycle. Allow it to die back naturally.
