Sowing tulip: Answer: Sowing tulips

Dear Francesca,

as you may know, reproduction of seed tulips is a very slow method. For this reason, the multiplication by division of the bulbils is usually used. In any case, here are some suggestions. Collect the capsules (i.e. the fruits) of the tulips in July-August, making them dry in a dry place. When the capsules are completely dry, the seeds are collected. At this point we proceed to sowing (in a container with a substrate of sand and peat in equal parts). During the winter the compost should not be watered. Only from March of the following year will watering start again. Remember that some tulip species do not bloom before 5-7 years of sowing.
