The bulbs can be planted in open ground or in a pot. Potted bulbs aren't frost hardy, so bring the pot indoors or protect the plant with bubble wrap. Space the bulbs out when planting in open ground. The distance between plants is three times the width of the bulb. Plant the bulb the depth of three times the bulb's height. Plant the bulbs in full sun or partial shade. Water the bulb immediately after planting. Don't water it until the soil feels dry to the touch. The flower bulbs come in plant-based, organic packaging. Made of 100% natural, plant-based materials and 100% recyclable!
All of our flower bulbs have the Holland Selection A quality mark, and come with a 100% guarantee that they will grow and bloom. You can be certain that the flower bulbs will grow.

As soon as possible after receiving the tulip bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or patio planter. If not the bulbs must be stored in a frost-free area until you can plant them. 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. The planting distance of these tulips is about 7 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Fill the planting hole with soil and avoid walking over it. Plant the bulbs one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. The more bulbs, the more beautiful the effect. Plant in groups of at least 6 bulbs or divide about 25 to 50 flower bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.
Tulips in pots
Tulips are great for growing in pots or planters. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and place a layer of broken crocks or gravel in the bottom of the pot. For extra colour in the pot, plant low growing anemones or forget-me-nots just above the tulip bulbs.
Tulip flowers are at their best 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. Tulips grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun. To protect 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.
Myths about tulips have existed for many centuries, one of which is the black tulip. Blue tulips are another. There are varieties that come close, but they are always more purple or brown than blue or black.
Tulips originate from the valleys of the Caucasus region and Asia Minor.
This tulip belongs in the single earlies. If you put these tulips in a prominent position, the compliments will come flooding in!
