Product Information

‘Young Love’ is a beautiful pairing of cream tulips that look like they belong together. They are Fosteriana, or Emperor tulips, bred for their superb coloring and sensational flowers on very robust stems and are some of the earliest to bloom in spring.

A combination of ‘Flaming Purrisima’ and ‘White Valley’ tulips, the flowers are extremely large, growing to 10 cm (4 in) across. They have superb weather resistance and will stand up to the rain and wind of spring well. With the creamy petals and touches of pink and green, these graceful tulips are simply gorgeous, either in the garden or cut in a vase.

Tulip ‘Flaming Purrisima’ has creamy white flowers with petals that gradually change to pink towards their edges with a delightful, feathered pattern and they are a deeper pink on the inside.

Tulip ‘White Valley’ Rich cream, semi-double flowers with a touch of buttery yellow at the base of the petals, with outer petals streaked in green.

Easy to grow in sun or partial shade, in borders or large pots with free-draining soil, plant them in autumn to flower in spring. They will give you a superb display which will get better every year as they begin to naturalise and spread. If you prefer, the tulips can be dug up and stored over winter.

Supplied as 25 bulbs, size 10/11, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 50 cm (20 in) and width of 15 cm (6 in).

Top Tips

  • Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

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’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then 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 bulb collection:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in posts ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.
