The luxurious flower is very strong and stands out well above the tulip leaves .
Plant in direct or partial sunlight. Ideal for planting in patio containers, borders or even as part of cut flower display. Flowers during the spring season between April and May. 11-12cm bulbs supplied.
PLANTING IS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3
1. Dig a hole 6” deep.
2. Set the tulip bulb pointy side up in the soil.
3. Cover the bulb with soil and water only if the soil is very dry.
Planting tulips side by side in a single row makes them look stiff and unnatural. Tulips look best when they are planted in informal groups of 5 or more bulbs. Rectangular, triangular or oval patterns (as shown in the photo at left) will make the planting look as full as possible and ensure the flowers are visible from all angles.
For best results, tulips should be planted in well-drained soil. Peat moss or compost can be added to improve drainage. Tulip bulbs should be planted pointy side up. If you are unsure which end should face up, plant the bulbs on their sides. Once the bulb starts growing, the plant will find its way to the sun.
CUT FLOWER GARDENS: Enjoy the fun of arranging bouquets of tulips for your own home or to share with friends and family. Planting bulbs in a cutting garden makes it easier to cut the flowers and bring the freshness of spring indoors. For cutting gardens, plant an assortment of different tulip flower types, including singles, doubles, fringed, lily-flowered and parrots.
ENTRYWAYS & BORDERS: Planting tulips in flower beds and borders lets you start enjoying a colorful garden long before most perennials have emerged from their winter sleep. Welcome guests by planting a bed of tulips along your front walk. For mass plantings, you can count on the large flowers of Darwin Hybrid Tulips to always provide a big impact.
