TULIP BULBS SHOULD BE
PLANTED LUTE IN THE FALL
Ought to Be Set Out After Heavy
Frosts or Light Freezes Have
Checked Vegetation—Light Loamy
Soil Best for the Plant
Washington, D. C., Nov. 4. —Tulip
bulbs that are expected to brighten the
lawn in the early spring must be plant
ed in the late fall aiter heavy frosts
or light freezes have checked vege
tation. On the fortieth parallel they
should be planted about the first week
iu November, and farther south a lit
tle later. These plants are adapted to
out-of-door culture in all parts of the
United States where the weather is
cold enough to freeze the soil for a few
weeks in the winter and they should
be planted about a mouth before the
ground is liable to freeze up. Other
"Holland bulbs" such as the hyacinth
and narcissus should be planted at the
same time as the tulip.
The United States Department of
Agriculture's specialist considers that
tulips are most appropriately planted
among shrubbery where they may be
naturalized or where they may remain
permanently. In general they are
used to advantage in formal beds or in
borders on the lawn.
Best Soil for the Tulip
The best soil for the tulip is u light
loamy soil. The soil should be well
drained and sand is better than clay.
In clay soils it is desirable to set the
bulbs on a layer of sand, to insure
.drainage, while in very heavy soils the
gaud should completely surround them.
They do best in a rich soil but manure
should not come in contact with the!
bulbs. It is best applied to a
crop. When fertilization is necessary!
at the time of planting, well-rottej/'
manure compost should be used. The 1
soil should be put in excellent condi-i
Tulips should be set four inches deep
while hyacinths and narcissi should be
set six inches, in all cases measuring
to the bottom of the bulbs. Care
should be taken to have the bulbs of
any variety of a uniform size and to
set them at a uniform depth as on this
depends uniformity in time of bloom
As soon as the surface of the ground
freezes to a depth of two or threo
inches, the bed should be covered with
coarse manure to prevent alternate
freezing ami thawing and also to pre
vent freezing below the bottom of the
bulbs and so prevent the formation of
roots during the winter. As soon as
freezing weather is over in the spring!
the mulch should be removed, at least l
the coarser part of it.
After blooming, the naturalized
plantings need no further attention ex
cept when replanting becomes ncces- ;
sarv, which in the case of tulips would
be in about three years, and of the oth
er bulbs about five. Bedded bulbs
should be left as long as possible before
digging so as to ripen them. They are
ready when the foliage begins to die.
If necessary to dig before ripe they
will deteriorate more rapidly than if
well ripened. After digging, dry in
the sun until the tops are well cured,
take off all the leaves, store on shallow
trays, where mice and rats will not
trouble, till the following autumn.
Bulbs May Be Raised Indoors
Not only are tulips and other bulb
ous plants attractive around the lawn
in early spring but they are also most
satisfactory for indoor culture during
flAfttrmgtmo F/mrmfi, xommmt 4, iftt4.
the winter. They should be used in
separate pots rather than in window!
boxes. Holland bulbs, such as the nar-j
cissus, tulip and hyacinth, are prac-|
tically the only plants that will flower
satisfactorily in the house with ordi-i
nary cure. About the only plant giv-j
ing similar satisfaction is the begonia,'
according to the Department of Agri-1
culture's specialist who has experi-j
mented with many varieties.
The essentials for growing bulbs in- 1
doors are that they shall become thor-|
oughly rooted before the tops are per
! mitted to grow. This is done by plant
| ing the bulbs in soil eitber_ in pots or
'i what florists known as "pa'ns," which
arc shallow porcelain pots, or in boxes,
j These bulbs are then pat in a cool placo
t in the dark, for a period of two to six
■! or eight weeks, or even longer if de
-1 sired. They should be left there until
| the roots are well started. In the case
| of bulbs planteM in pots, the pots may
- be inverted and gently tapped, when
I the bulb and soil will come out in a
mass. W'hen the bulbs have been suf
ficiently long in the pots, the earth in
the bottom of the pot will be complete
ly covered with rootlets. The bulbs
should then be brought into a slightly
warmer place with some light for three
or t'our days and then gradually
brought into greater warmth and full
light. During all the period of growth
the ground should be kept most without
Five Weeks to Develop
Narcissi take about five weeks to de-
velop from the time they are brought
into full light. Hyacinths take a longer
time aad tulips about the same time as
hyacinths. The Roman hyacinths come
in a little less time, while the paper
white narcissus only takes about four
■weeks. It is hard to hold the paper
■white narcissus for late winter. The
hyacinths and tulips are hard to bring
into bloom before February. The vari
ous forms of the yellow narcissus can
be brought into bloom from December
until tho time for outdoor blooms by
starting the bulbs early in the fall and
bringing them into the light at inter
vals of a week or ten days. For the
earliest bloom it is desirable to get the
bulbs started in October, and all of the
bulbs should be planted before the mid
dle of November.
Tulips require special care and at
tention. Tt is best to place the pots
or pans in a box an'd cover the whole
pot with at least two inches additional
soil or ashes, and leave them there un
til the bud has pushed clear above the
pot, otherwise the blooms will be
strangled in attempting to get out of
Instead of placing in the cellar,
these pots nnd boxes may be buried
in the open ground, the pots being cov
ered with four inches of soil. In lo
calities where the ground customarily
freezes hard, a heavy coating of man
ure shoulfi be added as soon as the first
crust freezes over the bulbs. This lay
er of manure will prevent their freez
ing and will permit tht bulbs to be re
moved to the house from time to time
The hyacinth, paper-white narcissus
and especially the (Jhincso sacred lily
are frequently grown in water. Special
glasses for these bulbs may bo pur
chased in which they may be success
fully grown, or they may be placed in
any attractive dish and supported by
pebbles. The water should be kept so
that it touches the bottom of the bulb.
