Planting Lavender And Tulip - Knowledgebase Question

Chiang Mai, In
Question by Khanhithere

I have a big farm that used to plant onion in Northern region of Thailand. I would like to change to plant some flowers such as lavender and tulip. Would it be possible for me to plant them. The yearly average temperature is 20-25 C. During winter the average temperature is around 6-15 C. If I am able to plant lavender and tulip, where can I buy seeds and bulb.

Thanks in advance for your help

Lavender should be grow well in your climate, as long as your soil is well drained, since it does not like to be kept too moist.

Tulips may be a bit more difficult, since the bulbs need 8 to 12 weeks of cool temperatures in order to flower well. I doubt that your climate stays cool long enough for them.
