What are Triumph Tulips?
Triumph tulips are the largest group of tulip varieties, providing an assortment of colors in mid-late spring. The blooms are single and of the classic tulip cup shape. They grow between 10 – 24 inches tall (25 – 60cm) on sturdy stems.
When do I plant Tulip bulbs?
Plant tulip bulbs in autumn, they will be shipped to you from the middle of September. The optimum time to plant tulips is when the soil has cooled down in October to December, but you can plant as late as January. Tulips need a spell of six weeks of cold weather to activate them into flowering in spring.
How do I plant Tulip bulbs?
Tulip bulbs start with a good source of moisture and nutrients stored within the bulb, so you don’t need prepare them in any way. To get the best results, plant them in moist soil during autumn, this will activate the growth of the roots before winter.
Plant them in a sunny or semi-shade position, with well-drained soil. Tulip flowers open in the sun, but close again overnight. Taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid stem breakage.
Plant tulip bulbs 10-15cm deep in well-draining soil, and around 5-10cm apart to stop the roots competing and the foliage getting cramped. Tulip bulbs produce a lot of roots that don’t like to sit in water, but once they start growing make sure they don’t dry out. If planting 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 store tulip bulbs?
Once your Tulips have bloomed, deadhead them but do not remove the leaves, this allows the bulbs to gather and store the energy needed 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.
Once the foliage has yellowed and died back, it can be removed, then 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 and keep them in a cool dark place ready to replant in the Autumn.
