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.
