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. Like a purple paeony

    By Julie Riseborough 20-06-2014

    This gorgeous tulip flowers in the first year so unlike paeonies than can take years to establish you will have a beautiful display in 6 months. The flowers lasted for a long time and kept their colour well.
