Tulip Kingsblood – is one of the richest red tulips we have in our range. The deepest crimson base into a cherry red petal, edged in scarlet. This single late tulip has a lovely single form that opens like a crown. A great single late tulip that flowers in late April or May. Single late tulips are tall tulips on stems of 50cm high, which makes them perfect for cut flowers. Plant these in beds with double late tulips so the Tulip Kingsblood can offer another level of height over the shorter double tulips, or mix with Tulip La Courtine to pick out the fiery red stripe.
How to plant tulip bulbs
Tulip bulbs are easy bulbs to grow in your garden. They can be planted in many different soil types. They will grow in full sun or semi shade. If you are planting in pots don’t let the soil dry out and leave plenty of room for the roots, plus avoid using only compost to fill the pots. Try mixing in some grit and garden soil with some drainage at the bottom.
Plant the bulbs approximately 10cm deep and 8-10 cm apart. You can fill a large planter with one pack of 10 tulip bulbs. It is often recommended that tulip bulbs are replaced each year, you can see why here
