A field trial consisting of three different planting depth (4.5, 5.5 and 6.5 cm) and two spacing (10 x 20 and 20 x 20 cm) was carried out Research Farm, under Crop Cafetaria Unit, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Hastinapur, SVP University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut (UP) India during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16. To assess the performance of these depths of planting and different spacing for improving the yield of tuberose. Only one cultivar applied namely Vaibhav were performed in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Maximum number of sprouts (4.53 and 6.16), number of leaves (27.32 and 42.56,), length of longest leaf (53.15 and 59.42) and height of plant (44.62 and 51.47) at 65 and 85 days after planting were found under the treatment D1, where the bulbs were planted at the depth of 4.5 cm. Wider spacing (20 x 20 cm) produced maximum number of sprouts (3.63 and 4.56) and highest number of leaves per plant (22.11 and 39.77). Spacing had no significant effect on length of longest leaf and height of plant. Therefore 4.5 cm depth of planting and 20 x 20 cm (S2)  spacing may be the recommended for better vegetative growth of tuberose especially double cultivar of Vaibhav.
