Product Description

An elegant alternative to bright, extravagant colour schemes, these gorgeous tulips in shades of deep, rich purples and fresh soft lilacs will bring an air of cool sophistication to you spring planting.

The large flowers look spectacular planted in groups, especially with a backdrop of the fresh spring foliage of surrounding plants. Growing happily in sun or partial shade, they are wonderful in large planters or in borders. Try mixing in orange flowering varieties for a striking colour contrast.

Tulips are easy to grow and care for and can be left in the ground after flowering as long as itís well drained, so youíll get another wonderful display the following year as they slowly naturalise and spread, or they can be dug up and stored over winter before replanting the following autumn.

Supplied as 15 bulbs, size 10/11, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 50 cm (20 in) and width of 20 cm (8 in).

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, theyíll 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

Tulips can be planted as late as November, but itís 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.
