Tulip bulbs were introduced from Central Asia in the 17th Century and in the 19th Century Dutch bulb companies recognised those garden bulbs had a commercial potential and Dutch growers learned how to grow and expand new varieties.

The dazzling , spectacular colours of tulip flowers and their beauty make them indispensable to gardeners in the UK and form a focal point to even the smallest garden . Plant in the Autumn until the end of November /early December for spring flowering blooms.

The best time to plant tulips is late autumn. Ideally , the temperature will have dropped and there may even have been a few frosts . This is important , as it reduces the risk of tulip fire- a fungal disease that thrives in damp warm conditions and can obliterate your tulip displays in the unfortunate event that your tulips become infected by it . Choose a site that has good drainage . You can grow tulips in most soil as long as they don’t sit in waterlogged soils . Plant bulbs at a depth of two to three times their own height and about two bulb widths apart.

Tulips also work well in containers , especially when used as a focal point .Plant one or two varieties in a single shade to make an eye catching display , bulbs4u ‘s pots are often filled with a single species in a single bright colour , showing how to create this look . The main thing to consider is the eventual height of the tulips , choosing an appropriately sized container . Species and dwarf tulip varieties will look wrong in a large container , as will tall varieties in a small tub .Plant tulips in pots the same way as if you were planting directly into the ground. Fringed tulips flower in May.
