How you will receive your bulbs:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive spring-flowering bulbs in the autumn in a breathable mesh bag. This is to keep the bulbs together in a pack that is nice and airy – perfect to keep the bulbs healthy while in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

Keep your bulbs in a cool, light, and dry place and preferably hanging on a hook so that air can get to the bulbs at all angles. Ideally, you should aim to plant your bulbs within a week of receiving them, but if this is not possible, store them in a cool, dark place until you are ready to plant them.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground: It is recommended that tulips are planted in October and November before hard frosts hit. If planted too early they may begin to grow and suffer frost damage. Planting later also reduces the risk of the bulbs being affected by viruses. Dig a hole with a trowel or a bulb planter 3 times the depth of the bulb, between 10-15cm deep. Plant bulbs approximately 15cm apart. If your soil is heavy, mix in quality bulb compost and potting grit to give them the best start. Place the bulb in the hole with the tip facing upwards, then fill the hole and compact the soil gently. Water in to moisten the soil and apply a bone meal fertiliser to encourage flowering.

Planting in containers: Place a layer of stones or gravel at the bottom of a large container in order to aid drainage. Fill the container with bulb compost to approximately 20cm below the rim. Place bulbs approximately 5-8cm apart ensuring the tips face up. Fill the container to about 3cm from the top of the rim making sure to firm the compost between the bulbs. Water thoroughly and place the container in a sheltered place over autumn and winter before moving into a sunny place in April.

Feeding and aftercare: When feeding in spring, use a liquid feed high in potash so it gets to the growing bulb quickly, feeding the roots. Deadhead the tulips as soon as the flower has dropped its petals to ensure energy is sent down back into the bulb. You will be able to leave the bulbs in the ground if your soil is free-draining and sandy.
