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 March - 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.

Reviewed 7th November 2018 by Sarah Jones

Loved this collection especially Exotic Emperor which was the first of all my tulips to open up. Looking back at photos I snapped on my phone of my garden, their flowering lasted for 6 entire weeks. Here in Derbyshire, they were coming out by 10th April and by mid May the petals were all frilled out and just so pretty.
