Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant your wallflowers as soon as they arrive, 25-30cm (10-12in) apart and then in November slot the tulip bulbs (pointy end up using a long-handled bulb planter) all through them to a depth of 15-20cm (6-8in).
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.
Harvesting Flower production: 2 months.

The tulips were fantastic but the wallflowers were more yellow than bronze. The wallflowers were very healthy plants.

Yes, they were a terrific show, in a huge black tub, and lasted for a long time.

They have come up ok but not as stunning as I had hoped for. Perhaps if I over winter them they may be better in 2020

Initially I thought this purchase was a failure as the tulips were very late in appearing and then seemed to grow so slowly I thought they were never going to bloom. However, I was wrong and bloom they certainly did. I will purchase again, probably, but may add in another colour of wallflower to the mix to give another dimension
