Add some romance to your flower beds with this decadent blend. A combination of moody cerise purple, marvellous deep maroon and a frilly cream double. The flowers will open mid to late season and the double layers of petals provide a full, fabulous show.
Our Tulip Blends take the guess work out of creating a fantastic tulip display. We have chosen varieties that bloom at the same time using colours that work well together. Tulips look best en masse and these blends allow you to create these beautiful displays with ease.
Tulips might be a bit more work than many bulbs, the show that they put on makes them absolutely worth it!
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.
