Additional Information

Plant in well drained soil, so if you have clay, add a bed of grit. Plant pointed end up around 8" deep and 4" apart. This makes the tulip tougher with strong stalks. Leave foliage on after flowering until it becomes brown, it can then be cleared. If you are 'lasagne planting', largest bulbs at the bottom, if they all the same size they can be planted in any order.Hardy bulbous perennial,

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
