Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. Tulip bulbs should be planted in late autumn, with the pointed end facing upwards, at a depth of approximately 3 times their height. Make sure that they are planted deep enough - shallow planting may prevent the bulbs receiving the necessary winter cold period that is essential for them to produce flowers in spring. Choose a sunny position in moist, free draining soil.
After flowering, allow the foliage to die back completely before removing it in June or July.

  1. Tremendous Tulips

    By Christine Edwards 28-04-2016

    These tulips were so tempting that I bought several packs and planted some in the ground but also filled six pots up and kept them in the greenhouse through the winter. Now they are unfurling their fabulous blooms and providing a wonderful array of colours and forms. A lovely sight, especially during this rather wintery weather. A great product.
