This is the hottest thing since the ballroom dance! The layers of pale pink petals have an even deeper pink blush around the edge. The beautiful blooms even have a soft, sweet fragrance. Flowers open early to mid season.

Double Tulips unfurl gradually to expose layer upon layer of petals, like old fashioned frilly petticoats. The large flowers are long lasting on short to medium stems. Double Tulips are great in pots or garden beds. You can use these large blooms to create platforms of colour in your beds.
Tulips look best en masse. When planting keep this in mind and plant them quite densely.
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.
