True extroverts. Parrot Tulips are colourful, frilled and flamboyant. They will always create a stir in the garden. Their ravishing bicolored, frilled petals are nothing short of decadent.

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.
If you are lucky enough to live where the weather is warm you will need to chill your bulbs. To do this place them in a paper bag, egg carton or similar breathable containment, then pop them into the crisper (don`t confuse them with onions!) and leave them for a 4-6 weeks (for Tulips some say up to 8 weeks but it is a long time taking up valuable fridge space so just do your best). Chilling your Tulips brings their flowering time forward and converts the carbohydrates to sugars stimulating growth in the bulb. By bringing your flowering forward the flowers will open before the warm weather and last longer. If you live in an area that gets at least two frosts a year you do not need to refrigerate your Tulip bulbs.
During this down time you can 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 10-20cm apart. Plant Tulips closely for a bigger show.
In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. 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 you do not need to lift your Tulip bulbs. In every other case it is recommended.
