Glossy, ivory petals with bold red flames burning up their sides. There are also hints of gold colouring the blooms. The leaves are also a feature, grey green with a tidy white edge. These stunning blooms open early to mid season.
Tulipmania might have transpired nearly four hundred years ago but the spirit lives on in gardeners everywhere. Tulips may have a reputation as `difficult customers` but in most cases this is undeserved. When you buy a bulb the flower is already pre-formed, ready to bloom. All you need to do is plant it into well drained soil in a sunny spot, fertilise and water occasionally then wait for the show!
To begin with, an easy way to remember when to plant your Tulips is Mother`s Day! By this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting. From there all you need to do is keep them moist and add a little fertiliser when they bloom.
