The cutting mixture tulips are perhaps the best value for money tulips we have to offer. Taking from our stock of 250 different tulips, we create our own stunning mixture. This includes single early, single late, double tulips, parrot, lily flowering and fringed tulips. Which means you get a wide variety of tulips to last the flowering season. All shapes and colours are included that have a suitably long stem to put into a vase.
Of course, you don’t have to cut them at all. Leave them in a bed to create an ever changing colourful blend from March to April. Tulips only flower once a season for 1-2 weeks. By planting tulips from different groups you can extend your tulip season up to 7-8 weeks.
How to plant tulip cutting mixture
Plant cutting mixture tulip bulbs in autumn but the later the better. Tulips are hardy and need the cold weather as part of their growing cycle. Ideally the tulip bulbs need to develop roots to help them over winter but they also want to be planted in cooler soil to help prevent any rot or disease. These aren’t hard rules and tulips will cope either way.
Tulips are an easy to grow bulb and will cope in all soil types. They are usually cultivated in very sandy soils which makes it easier to lift and clean them. Any free draining soil that holds some moisture will be fine. Compost can dry out very quickly and it is difficult to rehydrate it again.
It is ok to plant in full sun or semi shade (for example under deciduous trees). Planting in full sun will tire the tulips out a bit quicker. But, if you want them to open wide they love the sunshine.
After planting and over winter they won’t need any additional watering unless it is exceptionally dry. If tulips are actively growing and are hit with very dry conditions they may not perform.
Watch our planting bulbs in bulk video to show how easy it is to plant a lot of bulbs in a short period of time.
Remember not to mix daffodils and tulips in the same vase as it will cause the tulips to wilt.
