10 Tips for Protecting Tulip Bulbs

Tulips need about 12 weeks of cold chilling to bloom properly, but there is a risk of freezing when bulbs are planted in pots left outdoors. Use a freeze-proof pot at least the size of a half-whiskey barrel to provide enough protection. Place it in a protected area, such as inside a garage or near a house foundation, until the bulbs sprout in spring. You can also group large pots in a protected area and wrap them with burlap or other insulating material.
