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 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 early 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.

This is my first (and last) order with Sarah Raven. I ordered this collection with a total of 245 bulbs. I expected a balanced number of the different colours. The collection delivered was just 4 colours. 95 orange, 30 black and two sets of 60 of each red colour. As I have 11 pots to fill I will now have unbalanced colours in the individual pots.
Not what I expected and very disappointing

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

"Thank you for taking time to review our site. We are very sorry to hear that you have recieved the incorrect number of bulbs. With three bags of 80 you should of course have received 60 of each of the four varities and so are missing some of the tulip 'Black Hero'.
Please do contact our customer service team at info@sarahraven.com or by calling 0345 092 0283 and our team will assist you further.
Kind Regards, The Sarah Raven Team

These lived up to their promise, have brightened up the side entrance to our house and have lasted for weeks and weeks. Simply gorgeous and robust enough to withstand wind, rain and Lancashire climate.
