How do I care for the flower bulbs?
Water the flower bulbs abundantly in spring and summer. The soil needs to stay thoroughly moist, especially during dry spells. Flower bulbs in a pot or planter can best be put inside in winter. Keep them in a cool and frost-free place.
Replacing a flower bulb
It’s a good idea to plant new flower bulbs every year. After all, they are at their best the first year.
Species tulips are available in various shapes, sizes and colours! Over the years, thousands of cultivars have been developed - which means there is a tulip available to suit everyone’s preference.
A short anthology... There are various tulip shapes - common tulips, doubles, lily flowering, parrot tulips, fringed, large flowering and also 'botanical' tulips. They all vary in length of stem - long stemmed are 40-60 cm, mid-length are 20-40 cm and the shortest stemmed tulips are up to 20 cm tall. Then there are multiple flowering tulips. Plus we have to take into account the varrying flowering times - earlies (mid-March) to lates (mid-May).
The mid-length and long stemmed (so, taller than 20 cm) varieties are particularly suited as cut flowers in a pretty vase.
All tulips are classified under Liliaceae.
