Tulip 'Orange Favourite' is freesia-scented and wonderful with Allium ‘Purple Sensation’, and invaluable for its late flowering. One of my long-standing favourites.
See Tulip 'Orange Favourite' in Sarah's Tour of the Oast Garden in May on our YouTube channel.
Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.
|Soil Type:||Well-drained - sandy, chalky||Site:||Full sun, partial shade||Height:||50cm (20in)||Spacing:||Plant 30cm deep, 8cm apart. Layer bulbs if room is tight.||Hardiness:||Hardy||Care tips:||Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in- this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down - this allows the bulb to store more food||Flowers:||❀ May||For the vase:||Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.|
