Description:

I love to grow tulips and do so mostly in pots. Tulips love well drained soil, so if you have clay soil (like me), perhaps opt for pots also! These tulips are subtle and sophisticated- they have a silvery, apricot tone and will arrive earlier than most tulips!  They should flower around April time depending on temperature. I’d suggest mixing with other soft shaded bulbs or silvery foliage to create a mixed display!

Care:

These tulips are already potted so will be in their early growth stage. Avoid moving them until they start to show growth of around 3inches; they can then be replanted in pots or in your border and mixed with other bulbs.

Once they have  finished flowering, chop off the dead flowers but leave the foliage as this will feed the bulb. The bulbs can either be left in the ground or if in pots lifted and stored in a cool/ dark place until planting again next year. If re-planted in pots, always use new compost!
