    More Information

    Tulip Ad Rem – has deep orange petals, that feather golden yellow towards the edge and flowers in April. Tulip Ad Rem loves to open up with the sun, showing how impressive the Darwin Hybrid tulips are. This will light up your garden and will look fantastic planted on its own or mixed with others such as, purples like Tulip Synaeda Blue, or even our Tulip Pink and Purple Mixture, yellows like Tulip Blushing Apeldoorn and even a Double Narcissi like Narcissus Apotheose.

    Flowering in the spring, tulip bulbs grow well in borders, rock gardens and containers providing colour from early March through to mid-May.

    When do I plant Tulip bulbs?

    Plant tulip bulbs in Autumn, we recommend planting them in October, when the soil has cooled down, but you can plant them as late as January. The cool, damp soil helps to activate the growth of the roots before winter. Tulip Ad Rem will flower in Mid-April. Most tulips will flower for around two weeks, depending on the weather.

    How do I plant Tulip bulbs?

    Tulip bulbs already have most of the moisture and nutrients that they need stored within the bulb, so you don’t need to feed, soak, or prepare them in any way.

    The sun will make tulip flowers open very wide, but they close again overnight, so Tulip bulbs can be planted in a sunny position or semi-shade, with well-drained slightly acidic or neutral soil. Taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid damage.

    Plant Tulip Ad Rem bulbs around 15cm deep in well-draining soil, and 5-10cm apart. Once Tulip bulbs start growing make sure they don’t dry out. If you are planting them in pots, make sure they have good drainage and lots of room for the roots to develop. Pots can dry out quite quickly so a loam soil is often best.

    How do I look after tulip bulbs?

    Once your Tulips have finished flowering, you should deadhead the flowers, but do not remove the leaves. The bulbs need the leaves to gather and store nutrients to bloom again the following year.

    Tulip bulbs can be kept in the ground all year round, but you may find that they don’t put on as much of a display as the previous year. If you want to dig them up and store them, wait for the foliage to yellow and die back, then you can remove it and carefully dig the tulip bulbs up. Clean the soil off and let the bulbs dry, discard any damaged ones.

    Store tulip bulbs in nets or paper bags, but make sure you label them. Keep in a cool dark place ready to replant in the Autumn.
