Tulip Triumph Bulb Mixture is perhaps the most diverse mixture we have, with the exception of the tulip cutting mixture. Triumph tulips are single flowering tulips with a height of 40-50cm. They flower in mid spring between the flowering time of single early tulips and single lates. It is the largest group of tulips with a wide range of single colours, blended colours and mottled patterns such as Hemisphere. The mix is made from all of our bulbs in stock, which is a range of 28 different bulbs just in this group. The Tulip Triumph mixture bulbs will flower all together.
We pack only a portion of the tulip bulbs in bags of 25 to save wastage and packaging. If you are after larger quantities, we can make a mix to order. This is an ideal mixture for park displays or large beds that might require more than a few packs. We recommend planting 75 bulbs per square metre.
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 do I plant Tulip bulbs?
Tulip bulbs don’t need preparation prior to planting.
Tulip bulbs can be planted in full sun or in semi shade to prolong the flowering time. They will thrive in well-drained slightly acidic or neutral soil. Taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid damage.
Plant tulip bulbs 10-15cm deep in well-draining soil. Place 5-10cm apart to stop the roots competing and the foliage getting cramped. It doesn’t matter if the bulbs fall to their side as they can still grow without hinderance. Tulip bulbs produce a lot of roots that don’t like to sit in water, but once they start growing make sure they don’t dry out. If planting in pots, make sure they have good drainage and lots of room for the roots to develop. Pots can dry out quite quickly so a loam soil is often best.
How do I care for tulip bulbs?
Once your Tulips are finished, you can deadhead them but do not remove the leaves, as the bulbs need to gather and store the energy needed to flower again the following year.
Tulip bulbs can be kept in the ground all year round, but they are unlikely to put on as much of a display in the second year.
Once the foliage has yellowed and died back, it can be removed, then carefully dig the tulip bulbs up. Clean the soil off and let the bulbs dry. Discard any damaged ones. Store tulip bulbs in nets or paper bags, but make sure you label them. Keep in a cool dark place ready to replant in the Autumn. You can read more about why and how you should lift tulip bulbs.
