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 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.

The bulbs arrived at the right time for planting, and I layered them in two pots in the 'lasagne' method. They all came up this spring and were a fabulous display. I've never had such lovely tulips in my garden.

This is a beautiful, romantic collection. I particularly like the 'Danceline' (have previously purchased La Belle Epoque so knew they were lovely). The bulbs are large and of good quality and the flowers are simply gorgeous and last well as cut flowers.

Wonderful tulips....the pale peony collection
