    What are Single Late Tulips?

    Single late tulips are the classic tulip shape and come in a wide range of vivid colours. They are the last Tulips to bloom, typically in late April and into May.

    Planting Single Late Tulip Bulbs

    Plant Tulip Big Smile bulbs from October to December, around 6-8inches deep and a similar distance apart, pointed end up. They will do well in the centre of beds so that their height can complement the smaller plants at the front of the bed and larger plants at the back. Tulip bulbs don’t like too much water over winter, but need regular watering over spring. It’s good to give the tulips a little space but these bright colours will make themselves seen.

    Planting tulips in pots can be difficult, it is important to give the roots lots of room and good drainage. Pots can dry out very quickly and this can affect the bud even before it has emerged from the bulb. Use a moisture retaining soil with added drainage such as rubble at the bottom of the pot or grit mixed in the soil.
