When is the best time to plant tulips?

Question:

When is the best time to plant tulips?

Answer:

October is the ideal time to plant tulips, daffodils, and other spring-flowering bulbs in Iowa.  When planted in October, spring-flowering bulbs have sufficient time to develop a good root system before the ground freezes in winter.  If the ground isn’t frozen, tulips and other spring-flowering bulbs can be planted as late as late November/early December.
