Our favourite tulips of the season. Tulipmania might have transpired nearly four hundred years ago but the spirit lives on in gardeners everywhere!
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.
Our Tip: Tulips look best en masse. When planting keep this in mind and plant them quite densely. By using a triangle planting formation you can create a nice full display.
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.
