Description

Growing Double Early Tulips: The peony-like, gently ruffled flower petals of Double Early Tulips make a beautiful start to the spring season. These are an excellent choice for mixing into a spring flower display, or plant them as a focal point where they can shine. Excellent cut flowers too, so plant plenty! Cut when the flowers are still in bud and the outer leaves show color for longest vase life. Tulips are easy to grow in compost-enriched, well-draining soil in a sunny location. Plant in a sheltered spot to protect blossoms from extreme weather. Plant them 6-8" deep and lightly treat with organic fertilizer to get roots off to a good start. Water well and then only as needed during dry spells.
