    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.

    How to plant tulip bulbs

    Plant tulip bulbs from October to December in full sun or a slightly shaded position at approximately 10-15cm deep and 8-12am apart. Tulip bulbs are often cultivated in very sandy soil, and do best in well-drained soil. Do not over water them in winter and keep them moist during the growing season once the foliage starts to emerge. When planting in pots we use a mixture of garden soil, grit and loam. You can plant up to 60-70 tulip bulbs per square metre.
