    More Information

    Tulip Seadov – is a triumph tulip. Its flower is rich deep red. Tulip Seadov is slightly shorter than some Triumph varieties, at around 35cm in height and flowers during April.

    Growing up in the bulb industry the red tulip has always been icon to us. There are many different bright red tulips and the names change over the years, this is because the bulb industry needs a strong and reliable bulb to fulfil the demand for cut flowers all over the world. Over the years, a variety can diminish in quality from over cultivation, and, as the industry doesn’t use pesticides, tulip bulbs are cultivated to be disease free.

    Tulip Seadov might be just another red tulip, but it is a great quality bulb in a long line of iconic tulips and is a good contender for similarities close to Coleur Cardinal which is, sadly, no longer commercially grown.

    What are Triumph Tulips?

    Triumph tulips are the largest group of tulip varieties, providing an assortment of colors in mid-late spring. The blooms are single and of the classic tulip cup shape. They are short to medium in height, growing between 10 – 24 inches tall (25 – 60cm) on sturdy stems.

    How to plant tulip bulbs

    Plant tulip bulbs in a well-draining soil of a loamy mixture 10 cm deep. Tulips bulbs can be planted between October and December. They are a hardy bulb and need a period of very cold weather so they can start growing once the winter sun begins to warm up. You can leave tulips in the ground but it is not guaranteed that they will flower the next year as the bulb often splits into smaller bulbs not big enough to flower. Remember to remove the heads once the flower has finished as the petals can cause problems if they are left to rot into the soil.
