Go ahead. . . admit it. You love bright red strawberries, cardinals, fresh cherries, fire engine red lipstick and red Valentine roses. Paint the town red - or at least your part of it - with a sweep of Red Parade along your walkway or fence line. An ageless classic that simply sizzles. Red Parade is an excellent choice for parts of the garden that tend to be breezy as the shorter height stands up well in these conditions.

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 10-15cm 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.
