Planting instructions

They are winter growing, but should not be planted before late April or early May. Plant in pots or in the open in cool soil.


To achieve a spectacular, massed display of tulips, you need to plant at least four or five rows.

Interesting info

Tulips are often early flowerers, though they are sometimes sold late in garden centres and nurseries. It is not worth keeping bulbs for the next season, as they require special treatment to ensure flowers.
