Product Information

Probably the most widely grown of all dwarf tulips, Tulip 'Red Riding Hood' is a top choice for stunning springtime displays.

Flowering in March and April, they have striking, bright scarlet-red blooms with black centres,
which contrast delightfully against broad, grey-green, maroon-striped leaves.  Plant with other spring-flowering bulbs of different hues for dramatic effect.

Fully deserving of its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, 'Red Riding Hood' is a compact variety, so is perfect for rock gardens or the front of beds and borders. Alternatively, scatter them through grass, where they will naturalise easily and produce bigger and better displays every year.

They look equally stunning when planted in garden pots and make a beautiful cut flower for your vase. Easy to grow and reliably hardy, they are happy to be left in the ground for stunning results for many years to come.

Supplied as a pack of 30 bulbs ready for planting in the autumn.

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.
  • Plant in groups of 10 or more for attractive displays.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

Care Information

  • Plant in the autumn, 8-10cm deep, 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil in a sunny or semi-shaded position.
  • Although essentially a robust tulip, ideally choose a sheltered spot to protect from strong wind and heavy rain.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove flowerheads once they have faded and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, if not leaving in the ground, dig up the bulb for storing.
  • Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20C (65-68F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
