As soon as possible after receiving the 'Flaming Flag' tulip bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or window-box. If not, the tulip bulbs must be kept in a frost-free area. Plant the bulbs in a hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. For example a bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. Planting distance between 'Flaming Flag' bulbs is about 10 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the flower bulbs one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups, prepare a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more flower bulbs planted the more lovely the effect of the flowers. Plant in groups of at least 6 bulbs or divide about 25 to 50 flower bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.
'Flaming Flag' tulips in a pot
The 'Flaming Flag' tulip grows exceptionally well in a flower pot or window-box. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro granules in the bottom of the pot. Place the bulbs in a planting hole that is 3 times as deep as the height of the bulb. For example a bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance for the 'Flaming Flag' in a pot is roughly 7 cm. For extra colour in the pot, plant forget-me-nots or anemones just above the tulip bulbs, which will flower beautifully below the tulips.
'Flaming Flag' tulips flower best in the first year after planting. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. 'Flaming Flag' tulip bulbs grow best in nutritious, well-drained soil in a spot in the sun, semi-shade or a shady position. To protect the bulbs grown in a pot against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water during dry periods.
The bicoloured flowers of the 'Flaming Flag' tulip are really spectacular. This is a tulip with strong stems. Selective cross breeding has given this tulip quite short stems. They look especially lovely amongst low growing spring flowers and in flower pots.
