Potted perfection! Bokassa Tulips are the premium Tulip range for potting. At Tesselaar we have carefully selected varieties with compact foliage and medium height flowers. These attributes lend perfectly to containers or small garden plantings. You could add annuals such as Pansies to the pot at the time of planting for a long and colourful display.

The Tulip is truly an extraordinary flower. With a past steeped in romance, it has been a muse for art, poetry and passion. The Tulip has obsessed nations, taking flower power to the extreme. It is known as the Queen of Bulbs.

Tulips have a bit of a Prima Donna reputation. With a little know how, though, 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.

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.
