Product Description

A fosteriana tulip that grows to around 30cm tall, 'Concerto' bears large, fragrant, buttercream flowers with yellow bases and black centres. Set amid attractive grey-green foliage, their exquisite colouring will mix beautifully with bolder colours.

A mid-height, long-lasting tulip with sturdy stems, it is perfect for beds, borders and containers, and make an excellent cut flower.

Easy to grow and fully hardy, 'Concerto' will flower from April to May, adding a fresh and vibrant feel to your spring garden, patio or decking.

Otherwise known as Emperor tulips, fosteriana varieties are closely related to their wild ancestors so will naturalise easily if left in the ground.

Supplied as a pack of 15 bulbs for autumn planting, they are best placed in a sunny or lightly shaded position, in rich, well-drained soil.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your tulip bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 

Aftercare Advice for your tulip bulb collection:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

 

Tidying your Tulips:

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
