We think everybody should have Tulips in their garden … so we have put together a great deal to get you as excited about Tulips as we are. These tulips are a great price so you can create the massed effect you have always dreamed of!
These varieties have been tried and tested and are easy and reliable in the garden. This colourful offer includes ‘Red and Gold’, ‘Golden Yellow’, ‘Brilliant Red’, ‘Rosie Pink’ and ‘Orange and Gold’. Includes 5 or 10 of each colour.
Tulips have a bit of a Prima Donna reputation. And while they can be a little more work than some bulbs, they do put on an amazing show. 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.
