Product Information

Special and Unique! Its easy to see how this unusual tulip got the name 'Ice Cream'!

The soft white inner bloom rises above the outer stawberry pink petals that have a hint of green, to look just like ice-cream in a cone. The petals are wonderfully ruffled and the flowers are so large that they have to be seen to be believed. The combination of white sitting on the pink and green cup is extraordinary!

These sensational tulips will create an excellent display in your spring borders, containers on patios, really making your garden come to life! They are also excellent cut flowers and make stunning indoor displays.

Supplied as 5 bulbs, size 11+ ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 40cm.

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, they’ll 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 for your tulip bulb collection:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s 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.
