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.

Healthy bulbs, all flowered well. Produced long lasting flowers and attracted much interest from passersby.

I was disappointed with the tulips for the price I paid as not all flowered well and they were very short, and I didn't really like the colour mix. I will not be ordering tulips from Sarah Raven again

Delivery good, but this is the 2nd year I've tried layering tulip collections in large pots and had a problem with those at the bottom not flowering. I don't know if this is the growing method or the bulbs, but the ones that did flower were very pretty

Great service. The tulip bulbs I bought and planted last autumn were absolutely stunning!!! I love that you sell subtle colours, and that you group them in harmonious bundles.

Absolutely gorgeous tulips - the rich colours and all blended together beautifully and there were such a show. As always, the parcel from Sarah Raven arrived promptly and came with full plant instructions. Happy with my purchase.
