Tulips 'Mega Mix'
Colour and value.
This mix is a fantastic, economical way to add some colour to your garden. Included are early, mid and late flowering varieties for an extended show. This is a cost effective way to plant tulips.
Tulips are at their best when 'mass planted' in groups or swathes, this will ensure their colour will have the most impact. Buy in bulk and save with this great deal.
Tulips are sensational for creating accents of bold colour through spring. You can plant Tulips in the garden, amongst perennials, in beds of their own or in pots.
Tulips may have a reputation for being `Prima Donnas’ 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 them into well drained soil in a sunny spot, water and enjoy the show.
A simple way to remember when to plant your tulips is around Mother`s Day. It doesn’t have to be on the day, it just serves as an easy marker. The timing is ideal as the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting and the really hot autumn days are usually done and dusted.
All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.
When growing tulips in pots, we recommend regular watering as potting mix is perfectly drained, so dries out quickly. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. In warm weather you may need to water daily to get the most out of them. If they are left too dry they tend to flower short, or abort their buds. We also suggest the addition of some fertiliser as they begin to grow to ensure the best show.
This is our recommendation for the best display, keeping in mind bulbs look best when planted nice and close together.
