How to take care of Liriodendron tulipifera
For best results soak the roots of Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulpenboom) for approx 2 hrs before planting, water well after planting and for the next few weeks until it becomes established. Grows well as specimen tree in lime-free soil. Needs a sunny location and well-drained soil. To keep the size of the Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulpenboom) in shape and to encourage the most colourful bark, remove a third of the stems back to ground level each spring. Fertilise in spring. Take cuttings in November to February.
The tree is fast growing up to 10 mtr in 10 years time so give it a spacious location and plenty of fertiliser
