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 March - 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.

Reviewed 13th May 2018 by Linda Sharpe

All ten of these lovely tulips came up and flowered for several weeks, much longer than I expected, and looked so nice with the pale sunflowers growing beneath them. I planted them near a pathway and received so many positive comments, and have enjoyed them everytime I walk up and down my path!
