I want to buy Tulips in the Northern hemisphere in bulk and plant them in the Southern hemisphere.My main concern is that this will mess up their internal bio clock and result in big losses of bulbs. When would the ideal planting time of the year be to achieve this? Should I perhaps let them rest for a season to get them in sync with the climate here? Any advice would be appreciated.
Tulip bulbs need a cold period, so here in Europe they should be put in the ground before winter (let's say November). Then after the winter they will grow in Springtime. So if you want them in the Southern hemisphere, plant them before winter as well. That will probably be around now, right?
