1. Choose a pot

There are many types of containers that can be used to pot tulips, including plastic, porcelain, wood, and tile pots, and pots as large as 1 ~ 2 m and as small as 10 ~ 15 cm can be planted, but the material is still the best for the clay and plastic pots with drainage holes at the bottom. Some pots can be displayed in different colors with similar shapes for aesthetic reasons, depending on the needs. Choose the depth of the pot is also very important, tulip root growth directly affects the quality of tulip flowering, because the pot is too shallow, not conducive to the growth of tulip seed ball root system, root growth is restricted, seriously affecting the soil root system on nutrients, water absorption, the plant is weak and slender, small flowers, so the best choice of pot depth in 15 ~ 20 cm.

2. Planting preparation

After choosing the planting pot, we can prepare the soil for planting. It is best to choose well-drained peat soil or humus with rich organic matter as the cultivation substrate. Soak the seed balls in 500 times of carbendazim for 20-30 min, then rinse them with water and set them in the pot. A few stones were placed at the bottom of the pot to facilitate drainage, and then the prepared soil was loaded into the pot. Before planting, to speed up the rooting of tulips, remove the brown skin around the root plate at the bottom of the seed bulbs, and then place the seed bulbs, the number of seed bulbs depending on the size of the pot, with a distance of 2-3 cm between seed bulbs. The number of seed balls depends on the size of the pot and the distance between seed balls is 2-3 cm. The seed balls are placed squarely in the pot with the tips of the buds upwards and the top of the seed balls covered with 5 cm of potting soil.

3. Potting instructions

The best time to plant tulips in pots is in October, when the planting time coincides with that of open ground. Then put the planted tulip pots into the outdoor open ground, dig a trench in the open ground according to the number and size of the pots, place the pots side by side in the trench with the height of the trench level with the top of the pots, and fill the soil around and between the pots. The principle is "water at the right time and in the right amount", but the water should not be too much or too diligent, otherwise the soil will be too wet and the seeds will rot. This is the rooting stage of the tulip, the quality of watering directly affects the growth of the tulip root system, the substrate can not be too dry, can be kept moist for a long time, the amount of watering also depends on the specific situation, depending on the different weather and different periods of growth and development. In early November, the pots are covered with grass for overwintering and protection from the cold. In the spring of the second year, as the temperature rises and the ground begins to thaw, remove the grass curtain to remove the backfill and take out the pots, around the beginning of April. Move the pots to an open and ventilated place. It is advisable to shade them in the hot sun or at noon, and to water them in appropriate amounts depending on the weather and temperature. During the growing period of tulips, apply a light foliar fertilizer about once a week.
