We have put together a collection of Princes, Queens, Dynasties and Flags to bring you a truly regal collection of tulips that will give you a long season of colour in your Spring Borders. The four different varieties in this bumper pack are all outstanding in their own right and together will add a touch of class to your displays:
Tulip 'Candy Prince' will be the first to flower with its soft lilac petals, contrasting well against any remaining daffodils in the border. Tulip 'Flaming Flag' is a stunning variety that has a rippled effect running through the blooms, mixing raspberry pink with a soft white, each flower will be different, giving you endless variety. Tulip 'Dynasty' has the 'wow' factor of the collection! Large, candy pink topped petals resting on a white base make this wonderful bloom really stand out in the crowd. Tulip 'Queen of the Night' - last to bloom and it's obvious why this one has saved herself until last, almost black blooms make her a classic beauty and well worth the wait for her to make a grand entrance! Bulb size: 10/11.
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.
