- Don’t plant tulips until mid-late October. Plant pointy end up 10-15cm deep, 8cm apart in borders (less in containers). You can use a mycorrhizal Bulb Starter.
This tulip reminds me of a Fabergé egg; delicate, richly coloured and perfectly formed. It’s easy and reliable and naturalises well to become completely perennial. Beautiful for picking for a small Moroccan tea or sherry glass.

Tulip petals are all edible. We scatter them over salad and use some petals dipped in tempura batter and served with a spring garden Frito Misto. Tulip 'White Valley' is a favourite for this.
After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
