Plant tulip bulbs in late summer or autumn. Tulips will grow well in any moist, well drained soil, except for particularly wet soils. Choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds. When planting tulip bulbs avoid shallow planting as this may reduce the winter cold period that is essential for tulip bulbs to produce flowers in spring. Plant them at a depth of 15cm (6") and at a distance of 13cm (5") apart.
After flowering, deadhead the faded tulip flowers and allow the foliage to die back completely before removing it in summer. Caution: Tulip bulbs are an irritant to skin and eyes, and are harmful if eaten.

  1. Such a joy - longlasting too.

    By Tanya eccleston 04-05-2015

    I've never plated tulips in containers before, but these turned out to be truly magical. Every bulb flowered spectacularly and we absolutely adored them. They gave us so much pleasure. Will definitely buy again.

  2. Stunning

    By Aileen Conway 01-05-2014

    I had some initial issues with bulbs arriving damaged due to poor packaging but this was resolved by customer services. I am glad to say the tulips didn't disappoint. The flowers are amazing and the foliage striped with veins of deep people. I will be ordering more for next year!
