Queensland Tulip (Bulbs 12/+cm,), Beautiful double fringed
Queensland Tulips, which feature double-blooming fringed petals. With lovely rosy-pink hues, the tulip blooms open up to 5 inches when they mature, offering striking beauty anywhere you plant them.
PLANTING IS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3
1. Dig a hole 6” deep.
2. Set the tulip bulb pointy side up in the soil.
3. Cover the bulb with soil and water only if the soil is very dry.
Planting tulips side by side in a single row makes them look stiff and unnatural. Tulips look best when they are planted in informal groups of 5 or more bulbs. Rectangular, triangular or oval patterns (as shown in the photo at left) will make the planting look as full as possible and ensure the flowers are visible from all angles.
For best results, tulips should be planted in well-drained soil. Peat moss or compost can be added to improve drainage. Tulip bulbs should be planted pointy side up. If you are unsure which end should face up, plant the bulbs on their sides. Once the bulb starts growing, the plant will find its way to the sun.
CUT FLOWER GARDENS: Enjoy the fun of arranging bouquets of tulips for your own home or to share with friends and family. Planting bulbs in a cutting garden makes it easier to cut the flowers and bring the freshness of spring indoors. For cutting gardens, plant an assortment of different tulip flower types, including singles, doubles, fringed, lily-flowered and parrots.
