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.

The first batch of bulbs were in poor condition, but when I reported this to customer service they immediately dispatched replacements. The display this spring was beautiful and the tulips flowered well. Pretty Princess were very striking on its own, with really sturdy stems and withstood some really poor weather. Overall, very pleased with the service and product performance.
