- 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. After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
The tulips here are all selected to be beautiful – of course – also relatively short, so they are perfectly suited to a container or windowbox. And they are all double, peony-flowered varieties, which means, as sterile forms, they flower for twice as long as many.
In this jam-packed and showy combination we overplanted the tulips with Narcissus 'Baby Boomer' for its chive-like foliage and scent as well as Geum 'Mai Tai' and Helleborus 'Merlin' to prolong flowering from January to June.
This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
- Tulip 'Antraciet'
- Tulip 'Copper Image'
- Tulip 'Dream Touch'
Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.
