Step 1 : Till The Bed

Before we till our beds we will put a compost down to mix with the soil. This is the best time to mend the soil due to during the spring and summer your annuals are drawing the nutrients from the dirt. This is a perfect time to put some of that back to help your tulips grow strong and healthy as well as your other annual flowers for the next year.

Step 2 : Remove Tilled Dirt

Time for the hard part! We'll take the tilled dirt out of the bed and put it on a tarped area next to the side. The dug out area should be 5"-6" inches deep.

Step 3 : Till The Base Of The Bed

After the tilled dirt is removed and your bed is 5"-6" inches deep, we go ahead and add a bit more compost and till again. This allows a softer area for the Tulip/Hyacinths bulbs to sit when planting and does not allow the bulbs to move or fall over when we put the top soil back in the bed.

Step 4 : Rake Tilled Base Dirt Evenly

Once the bed is tilled now we can rake it evenly prepping for bulb placement.

Step 5 : Plant Tulips/Hyacinths

Now the bed is ready to plant. We push the bulbs down into the loose soil firmly to hold. 

Step 6 : Put Dirt Back Into Bed

Once we have your bed full of Tulips/Hyacinths bulbs it's time to put the loose tilled soil back into the bed.
