Plant tulip bulbs from October to November. Plant the bulbs at a depth of at least three times their height into free draining soil in a sunny site.
Avoid planting bulbs in soil that gets waterlogged; and on heavy soils add grit to the planting hole to prevent bulbs rotting.
Tulips are native to hot dry regions of Iran and Turkey where they thrive on very free-draining soils. The bulbs enjoy hot summer sunshine but they also need a period of winter cold to produce the best flowers.

Plant tulips in containers of gritty compost f you garden on wet, heavy soil. Plant the bulbs at a depth of at least three times the bulb’s height.

After care
Deadhead the spent flowers to stop the bulbs from diverting energy into seed production.
Let the tulip leaves die down naturally and don’t be tempted to cut them back early. The foliage needs to absorb energy back to the bulb to ensure next years flowers.

Tulips are grouped into 15 classes. These classes are based on a number of factors including flowering times, flower type and shape. Fringed tulips are grouped in Class 7. The tulips in this class are characterised by their fringed and toothed flowers, most are tall and bloom in mid-to late spring.
