Deep purple, fringed petals with a crystal white base. A lovely option to combine with softer colours, the dark hue will make them pop. The fimbriated petals add a little texture to the display. Tulip ‘Purple Crystal’ flowers mid season.

Extravagant petals, with intricate, lacy , their unique shape creates beautiful texture in the garden. Fringed Tulips are remarkable and offer excitement and substance wherever they grow.

While tulips can be a little more work than some bulbs, their show is second to none, and with a little know how they are easy as pie! A simple way to remember when to plant your tulips is Mother`s Day! It is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting. It doesn’t have to be on the day but as long as you are around the date.

All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.

It is a good idea to prepare the soil for their arrival by adding some delicious organic matter. Tulips need good drainage and at least six hours sun a day to flower at their best. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep with the pointed end up. Space your tulips 10-20cm apart, planting closer for a more spectacular show.

In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. You don’t need to do this if you live in an area with frost, the soil is shaded or mulched through summer and the ground does not become soggy during their dormant period. In every other case it is recommended.
