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
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.

I was disappointed with one of the three varieties of tulip. The plum coloured and apricot coloured ones were as I had expected but the other ones never really looked very good.

One or two rogue bulbs appeared with the ones ordered. Otherwise the whole Effect was very pleasing although did not detect much in the way of scent, not normally a problem for me.

I am a regular customer and the choice of product (plants) is fantastic however recently, the quality of the plants received has not been so good. Our last delivery (dahlia) was pretty feeble and battered and so were the bedding plants received. Several were completely broken and therefore taking a long time to recover now. I have asked for replacements in the past but I honestly don't have the time or energy to keep doing so. Perhaps I need to re-think buying plants online in the future.
