Create a splash with these gorgeous blooms. Carmine pink, almost red petals with a cream flame that looks cream at different times of the day. The colouring is deepest on the inside of the bloom. The soft red tones are really interesting compared to the bright or deep shades you usually see. Tulip ‘Judith Leyster’ opens mid season.

Tulips are the superstars of spring. They can take centre stage like no other flower can, creating unforgettable spring shows. This collection shows off some of their most striking blooms, great for adding some flare to the garden. Not only do these tulips look good, they have also impressed us with their durability and lasting performance.

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.
