How to plant and take care of Van Eijk
- Planting Time: Plant the bulbs in the fall, around 4-6 weeks before the ground freezes, to allow them to establish their root system before winter.
- Soil Requirements: Choose a well-draining soil with good fertility to ensure optimal growth. Incorporating organic matter or compost can improve the soil quality.
- Sunlight: Tulip Van Eijk thrives in full sun to partial shade, so select a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
- Watering: Provide regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to bulb rot.
- Maintenance: Remove faded flowers to prevent the plant from expending energy on seed production. Allow the foliage to wither naturally after flowering, as it helps replenish the bulb for future growth.
- Winter Care: In colder regions, apply a layer of mulch over the bulbs to protect them from freezing temperatures.
