Tulip Double Velvet

Tulip Double Velvet is a deep maroon colour. The double petals give the tulip flower head a large round form. With quite a long stem Tulip Double Velvet is a fantastic bulb for flowering at the end of the tulip season. Dark colours make great accompaniment to other tulips for your display. Choose a lighter tulip with a similar flowering time in late May such as Mount Tacoma or La Belle Epoque

It also makes for an impressive cut flower. Remember although it is tempting to use up spring flowers in one vase, you can’t mix daffodils and tulips together as the daffodils will make the tulips droop.

How to plant

Tulip Double Velvet bulbs are simple to plant. They will go in any soil so long as it is free draining. Tulip bulbs do not like to get too wet over winter but they need plenty of water once they are actively growing. If you plant them in pots, adding drainage is helpful but make sure there is lots of room for the roots to develop and don’t let the soil dry out. Compost can dry out very quickly and doesn’t take water very well when it has dried out. A mix of loam, compost and garden soil is something I find quite succesful.

Plant the bulb with the point up and 10-15cm deep with around 5-10cm space between the bulbs. It doesn’t have to be exact as the bulbs will find their way into the right position.

Complex tulips such as double need a large bulb to put on a good display. When the tulip has flowered the bulb splits into many smaller bulbs. Most of these will not be any use for flowering the next year. You can keep them for the future but we recommend lifting the bulbs at the end of the season.
