Full Answer

  1. Set up your cold frame and seeds

    Place your cold frame somewhere outside of your home where it will receive light but can be shaded from the sun during summer afternoons. Place your planting trays inside of the cold frame and fill them with soil. Plant the seeds in February.

  2. Water the soil regularly

    Keep your watering can near the cold frame so that you can water it regularly. Do not overwater the soil. It should be moist but not sopping wet. Ensure that the cold frame is not subjected to severe weather that may cause the soil inside to become too wet or too dry.

  3. Keep the seedlings safe and wait

    Continue to maintain the cold frame and water regularly, keeping an eye out for any weather hazards. The tulips should remain in the cold frame throughout the growing season and winter. Wait until the seedlings' second autumn before moving them.

  4. Move the tulips to the garden

    Remove them from the frame and move them into the garden, leaving 4 to 6 inches between each plant.
