Product Description

A bold, chestnut-brown pointed petal, tipped with ochre yellow, gives tulip ‘Gavota’ a distinct colour contrast that will add drama to your mid and late spring flowering.

With long-lasting blooms through April and early May, they are an ideal choice to extend springtime flowering in your beds, borders and containers. Set on sturdy stems, the striking colours are enhanced by attractive green foliage, which provides a delightful display for your vase.

An easy-to-grow hardy bulb, they thrive in rich fertile, well-drained conditions, enjoying full or afternoon sun – plant plenty in the autumn to enjoy flowering well into spring and give enough for cut flowers.

Supplied as a pack of 15 bulbs, they are best planted in groups in borders or pots and can be combined with other spring-flowering bulbs, early flowering perennials and shrubs for a stunning display.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Although essentially a robust tulip, plant in a sheltered position to protect from strong wind and heavy rain.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

 

Care Guide

  • Plant in the autumn, 10-15cm deep, 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil in a sheltered spot to protect from strong wind and heavy rain.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove the flower heads once they have faded and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulb for storing. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20°C (65-68°F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
