Product Description

Plant a kaleidoscope of colours with this spectacular mix of double-flowered tulips.

Also known as 'Peony tulips' for the close resemblance that the sweetly scented, blousy blooms bear to that early summer favourite, they are perfect for beds, borders and containers, where they will be the star of any spring-flowering show.

In a mix of colours ranging from creamy white to glorious pastel pinks and  pinky reds, these multi-petalled blooms will fill the air with delightful perfume. The large, double-cupped, bowl-shaped blooms will also look fantastic in a vase so make sure you plant enough for armfuls of cut flowers.

An easy-to-grow hardy perennial, they will thrive in fertile, well-drained conditions, enjoying full or afternoon sun. Plant in the autumn for long-lasting, opulent, multi-coloured blooms in April and May.

Easy to grow, they are suitable for gardeners of every level of experience. Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs, they are best planted in groups in borders or pots for a beautiful display.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Which way up? Usually pointy end upwards, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.
  • Plant in a sheltered position to protect heavy blooms from wind.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

 

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 will just need a good watering when you plant them, and thereafter 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 bulbs:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it is best to get your bulbs in the ground early in the autumn so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • 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 allow the leaves to remain 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.
