When do I plant tulip bulbs in zone 8?

Tulip bulbs are usually planted in October. When the days are frostfree they can be planted as late as December.

When do I plant tulip bulbs in zone 8?
antime before the ground begins to freeze
Reply:Plant them tomorrow.
Reply:Tulips are grown in zone 5-7 in the U.S. and 6-4 in Canada. They need a cold winter, if the winter is cold enough in your area, if the ground freezes for a couple of months then mabe you can grow them, but plant them before the ground does freeze, like now!!!!!!!! I think before you plant you ned to go on the web and search for GARDENING IN ZONE 8, it's there.
Reply:Tulip bulbs need to be planted in the fall before the ground freezes.
Reply:Plant them now, as they need Winter to bloom next Spring.

Make sure you give them a well lit location, %26amp; if you can, give them some nice rich soil. If you can put down some fertilizer around where you're planting them, all the better.

I just planted about 3 dozen tulip bulbs maybe 3 weeks ago. I live in NY.
Reply:I put mine in in the fall. It worked just fine and I'm zone 8 also
