Tulip Peppermintstick Collection


Tulipa were originally a hobby for the extremely rich, they became the ultimate symbol of prosperity and wealth. In the 17th century ‘Tulipomania’ took hold of Holland and a single bulb would sometimes be sold for the price one would pay for a house! Centuries later the tulip is still well loved and there are so many different forms. Although all are perfect for borders and containers and make excellent cut flowers. Prefers well drained soil in sun or part shade. Fully hardy bulbous perennials.

Lasagne Planting, is the secret to successful, long-flowering spring bulb containers, and requires bulbs that flower at different times and look really good together.
Absolutely nothing to do with pasta, the name comes from the layering of the bulbs.
Plant the bottom layer using the species with the largest bulbs, packed quite closely but not touching. Cover with 5cm of compost then build your middle layer using the next largest bulb. Complete the project by adding the final layer, top with compost and water.

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"
