1. Prepare an area by removing any stones and weeds.
2. Dig a hole approximately twice as deep as the bulb height.
3. Place the bulb in the hole with the pointy end facing up.
4. Cover the bulb, firm down and water.

For a natural looking drift...
1. Dig the top layer of the area where you wish your display to grow.
2. Open the bag of bulbs and distribute the contents evenly over the chosen area.
3. Rake over to completely cover the bulbs, firm down and water.

If you are not sure which way up the bulb should be facing, lie the bulb on its side.
You can add some slow release fertiliser at the time of planting to give the bulbs an extra boost.
If you want the bulbs to come back the following year then allow to die back naturally.
Tulips should be removed from the growing area after blooming, as they do not like to grow in the same location the following year.
