Cultivation instructions:

Very suited group of tulips to grow in containers, tubs and borders.  Viridiflora tulips such as Tulip Viridiflora China Town AGM are quite unusual but are very much sought after by flower arrangers because of the varying amount of green in their petals. Tulips make a stunning show when planted in groups of 10 or more. .

When planting ensure the soil is loosened to a depth of 20cm and is free draining. In heavier soils add grit and rotted humus material to provide extra drainage. Plant tulips with the pointed bit upwards at a depth of 15cms and 10cms apart. When planting in containers the planting depth can be reduced to 10cms and distance apart to 5cms.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails, remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them.  Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.

Care tips:

Plant tulips when the ground starts to cool down which is normally October. However planting earlier or later does not seem to effect performance. Tulips do benefit from using bulb starter when first planting.

These tulips work really well in containers and all parts of the garden, they look good when planted with shrubs and alliums for instance.
