      What are fringed Tulips?

      Fringed Tulips are, as the name suggests, tulips with a fine fringe around the edges of the petals. They are simpler than Parrot Tulips, and are available in a wide range of colours.

      When to plant Tulip bulbs

      Tulip bulbs will be shipped to you from the middle of September once we have received them. The optimum time to plant tulips is in Autumn, when the soil has cooled down, usually between October and December, but you can plant as late as January. To activate the growth of the roots before winter, plant them in moist soil during autumn, to give them the six week spell of cold weather that they need.

      How to plant tulip bulbs

      Choose an area with well-draining soil and full sun exposure, or semi-shade. They should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid damage. Plant each tulip bulb four inches deep and six inches apart, making sure to keep them upright and pointed side up. Tulip bulbs like moist soil, so once they are planted, keep them well-watered, especially during periods of dry weather.

      Storing tulip bulbs

      Once your Tulips are finished, you can deadhead them but do not remove the leaves, the bulbs need these 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 you may find that they don’t put on as much of a display as the previous year.
