Potted perfection! Bokassa Tulips are our premium 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. Another great idea when potting bulbs is to layer smaller bulbs on top, choices such as Spring Star Flowers, Miniature Daffodils or Grape Hyacinths will extend the show and add to the colour.

Of course, you shouldn’t limit yourself to just pots, they also grow well in the garden.

Tulips have a bit of a Prima Donna reputation but with a little know how they are easy as pie! An easy way to remember when to plant your tulips is to do so around Mother`s Day! This timing is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting.

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 10-15cm 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.
