Spacing Plant pointy end up 10-15cm (4-6in) deep, 8cm (3in) apart. Layer bulbs to a depth of 25-30cm (10-12in) if room is tight. Remember to add plenty of grit if your soil is heavy. For containers, space bulbs 1-2cm (½-1in) apart if planting in a single layer, give them more room, 2-3cm (1-1½in) if planting in a bulb lasagne.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant outdoors October-December.
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 and increases the chances of good flowering the following year.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper to hold the stems ram-rod straight and leave to drink for at least 3 hours – or overnight. This helps keep the stems straight, but tulips do continue to grow after picking so curves may appear.

Bulbs arrived in good condition. They were a gift for my brother. He failed to protect them and they were all taken by squirrels! So can't give useful feedback.

Unfortunately, although doing everything right, some of my dahlias did not grow. The Honkas were a failure which was a shame because they were the ones really really wanted. I was surprised as all my other purchases from Sarah Raven were always spot on. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed. The tulip bulbs were also a bit sparse in flowering only about 50% were successful

Everything arrived well packed and labelled and in good condition. They have given us an amazing display of a huge variety of tulips.that we have not seen before. I also made up pots for several friends as Christmas presents and all of them have been in awe at the different flower heads and colours.
