With their curiously shaped flowers, with twisted and often lacinated petals, these tulips look more like exotic birds than flowers. They are very robust, both in the garden and as cut flowers, and are increasing in popularity. As early as 1660 they were admired for their unusual shape. Our Parrot Tulip mix, should certainly not be missing in your garden or on your patio.

As soon as possible after receiving the Parrot Tulip Mix bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance of the Parrot Tulips is about 10 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the tulips one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more flower bulbs planted, the greater effect the flowers will have. Plant the tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs, or divide about 25 to 50 flower bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.
The flowers of the Parrot Tulip Mix are at their best in the first year. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. The Parrot Tulip Mix grows best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun. 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.
