Tulipa White - tulip

DESCRIPTION: Elegant snow-white flowers stand tall above strap like foliage. Plant tulip bulbs to enjoy a showy display each Spring year after year.
PLANTING: The traditional time to plant tulips is around mothers' day but any time in late autumn-early winter is fine. Bulbs thrive in free draining soil. Prepare clay soil using a clay-breaker and add well composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Add grit or gravel to your planting holes if your soil is heavy, or plant up into containers. Plant bulbs with the narrow end facing upward, cover with a good layer of mulch to help regulate soil temperature.
USE IN: Plant as a flowering border below deciduous trees or group closely in pots for bright spring flowering colour.
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the first flowers appear. Water and feed weekly or if the soil becomes dry, give a good deep water (bulbs are generally at least 5 cms below the surface). Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year.
CLIMATE: Frost to Sub-Topical
