More Details

If a flamingo was ever to become a tulip, this is how it would turn out and nothing gives me more pleasure than to see clumps of it in our pots at home. It came up in my parents’ garden for over 20 years.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting 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.
Care Tips Don’t plant tulips until the cold weather has set in - this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Dip the bulbs first into a saucer of water, then into mycorrhizal Bulb Starter (to help the Starter stick) when planting and mulch with manure. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down; this allows the bulb to store more food.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life 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.
