What are Single Late Tulips?
Single late tulips are the classic tulip shape and are available in such a wide variety of colours, from whites and yellows to deep reds and purples. They are the last Tulips to bloom, typically in late April and into May.
Planting Single Late Tulip bulbs
It is important to choose a good planting site with plenty of sunlight and well-drained soil. Plant tulip bulbs in Autumn, at approximately 10-15cm deep and 8-12am apart, to ensure healthy flowers come springtime. After planting, mulch the soil to keep it moist and to protect the bulbs from extreme temperatures.
Once the flower buds are beginning to emerge in spring, water them regularly but be careful not to over-water. This will help promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms. Fertilising is not essential but can help to produce perfect blooms; use a fertiliser high in phosphorus, like bone meal or fish emulsion, for best results.
Finally, deadhead spent flowers as soon as possible and remove any yellow leaves on the plants.
