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.

Re' Half Darwin and half Greenland!!
By Liz Sherratt 07-05-2016
Customer Care eventually got in touch and are going to send me some replacements - hopefully actually Darwin this time!
If they arrive in two bags I think I'll plant them in separate groups so that whatever they are, they won't look odd!
Thank you for your help.
Looking forward to Spring 2017 for a lovely display!!
Thank you for your review. We're glad that we were able to come a satisfactory resolution for you. Please do let us know if you're not entirely satisfied with the bulbs you receive later in the year
Half Darwin and half Greenland!!
By Liz Sherratt 02-05-2016
I bought 32 of these, which arrived in two bags of 16 - both labelled 'Darwin'. These were planted in a large group, but now that they're flowering it is clear that only one bag was Darwin - these are largely yellow, with a few red. The other half of the group, i.e. the second bag, are completely different tulips, half the height, darker stems, paler leaves and a mottled pale pink colour - I suspect 'Greenland'!
Whilst both types look pretty, they sadly look rather odd together!
Very disappointed - I'm getting rather fed up with plants and bulbs from T and M that are not the colour that they're supposed to be!
Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. At your earliest convenience please contact our Customer Care Department at firstname.lastname@example.org, one of our agents will be more than happy to look into this further for you.
