Container Tulips


Zone Naples, Florida | tcmona added on April 18, 2017 | Answered

Someone gave me a lovely vase of tulips with bulbs on them. I was thinking of planting them. I live in Naples, Florida and really know nothing about planting tulips. Should I put them in a pot or in the ground? Do they need complete sun? What should I use to fertilize them?

Tulips that have been "forced," or grown indoors in water, don't usually adapt well to the outdoors, and they aren't very likely to survive. You can try planting them, but is probably better to buy new bulbs for planting next fall.
