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 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 Early 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.

These are great bulbs and have flowered reliably. Unfortunately the Charming Lady have flowered pale yellow (same problem with some I also purchased separately) - do not fit with the other apricot/peach tulips I purchased. Disappointed. For quality of bulbs and flowers would give 5 stars however.

Just Gorgeous

I planted this collection in a large pot, and am absolutely thrilled with them. Gorgeous colours that work well together. I have received many positive comments from visitors to my garden.

Beautiful colours. I planted in a lasagne so I'm hoping I will get another good show next year. Until then it's the 4 stars with fingers crossed
