There are a lot of different forcing techniques. Depending on the climate in your country and the availability of greenhouses and cooling rooms, you can choose a suitable system. Each system has advantages and disadvantages. The most used systems are:

  • Forcing in boxes with potting compost (9C)
  • Forcing in the soil (5C)
  • Forcing in boxes with water (9C)

Preparation/Temperature treatment.(top)

The tulip-bulbs need a preparation period on several different temperatures before they can flower. It is possible to give the preparation in one of my stores but it is also possible in your stores. The temperature you have to give is also depending on the forcing technique you’re going to use.
