Product Information

These spectacular double-flowering tulips are also known as 'Peony tulips' for the close resemblance that the sweetly scented, blousey blooms bear to that early summer favourite. They will bloom from April through May, bringing a luxuriant splash of colour to your garden and filling the air with delightful perfume.

Tulips are perfect for planting in a mix of hues, shapes and sizes, contrasting beautifully against one another, so plant them en masse in borders for a wave of colour  or in containers for a superb springtime feature. This mix of double-blooming tulips is ideal for creating eye-catching colour and structure. Simply plant the bulbs and look forward to spring, when they will erupt into a delightful display.

With long-lasting blooms on elegant stems, they make lovely cut flowers, too. Simply bunch in a vase to bring a beautiful touch of spring colour and scent to your windowsill or mantelpiece.

Tulips are very easy to grow, they are suitable for gardeners of every level of experience.

Supplied as a mix of 20 bulbs, size 10+ ready to plant out in autumn.

Top Tips

Which way up? Usually pointy end upwards, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your tulip bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart, e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing; they will just need a good watering when you plant them, and thereafter only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots, be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 Aftercare Advice for your tulip bulbs:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it is best to get your bulbs in the ground early in the autumn so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Water frequently, and if in pots, ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

 Tidying your tulips:

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to allow the leaves to remain on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this, and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
