Product Information

Tulip 'Canasta' shows off its frilly petals with contrasting flower colour that starts red at the base, and gradually fades through to pink at the top of the petal, then edges in white. These white frills really add an accent to an already striking spring flower!

Like the other fringed tulips, these are one of the longest lasting of all the tulips. Their short and compact large red flowers will thrive in borders and pots and will also look stunning when cut and brought indoors to create beautiful vase displays.

Tulips are one of the most popular spring flowers as they're so easy to grow and care for but give maximum impact for minimum effort. They can be can be left in the ground after flowering as long as itís well drained, so youíll get another wonderful display the following year as they slowly naturalise and spread, or they can be dug up and stored over winter before replanting the following autumn.

Supplied as a pack of 12 bulbs, size 10/11 ready to plant in autumn growing to a height of 40cm and width of 10cm.

    Top Tips

    Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

    Care Information

    Planting Advice for your Tulip Bulbs

    Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
    Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
    They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, theyíll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
    Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
    While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
    Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
    If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

    Aftercare Advice

    Tulips can be planted as late as November, but itís best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
    Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
    Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

    Tidying your Tulips

    Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
    While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
