This fiery selection of Praestan tulips will add a blaze of colour to your pots and borders in spring. Each of their sturdy stems will produce up to four to six flower heads. No tulip will multiply like the Praestan which naturalises year after year, making them one of the most popular tulips around (as well as excellent value for money). Broad lance-shaped leaves provide a complementary backdrop for these bright and cheerful multi-headed tulips. Wonderfully carefree displays can be created by planting all varieties together - try throwing the bulbs in the air over a patch of soil, planting them where they land for a natural display. Alternatively, you could keep each unique variety in separate containers so they can be appreciated individually. This collection is ideal for anyone who wants to celebrate the coming of spring - and the end of winter - with an explosion of colour. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather (it helps wipe out disease, too.) Plant bulbs pointy side up, 12cm deep and water well. Top quality 10cm+ bulbs supplied. Flowers April to May. Height 25-30cm. 15 Unicum (red with variegated leaves), 15 Fusilier (scarlet red) and 15 Shogun (tangerine orange).

Soil Type

Well drained garden soil

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.
After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
