Product Information

Tulips are a popular bulb choice for spring colour and 'Verona, is something a little different to create a stunning feature border that will make your garden stand out.

A double, early tulip with erect, grey-green leaves and soft creamy flowers with a gorgeous, light scent. You may occasionally see pale green on the outermost petals.

The peony-type flowers are carried on sturdy stems to around 35cm high so they make perfect cut flowers so you can bring their rich display into the home.

Easy to grow, Verona is a perfect tulip for growing in pots, where they can be moved around the garden or grown on a balcony - so anyone can have a go at growing them.

Supplied as 10 good sized bulbs, ready to plant out to create magnificent visual impact plant in a clump or dot throughout the flower bed between blue and purple perennials.

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 bulbs:

  • Tulips prefer sun so consider this before planting.
  • Tulip bulbs begin to put down roots in October and November, so can be left until then if you're short of time, just store your bulbs in a cool, dry place.
  • 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.
  • If you garden on heavy soil, cover the base with 5cm of sharp sand or horticultural grit. This allows bulbs to put more energy into flowering and less into forming new bulblets.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tulips grow perfectly well in pots filled with soil-based compost with some added grit or multi-purpose compost.
  • Bulbs grown in pots should be planted deeply in the garden after flowering and pots replanted with fresh bulbs the following year.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

 

Aftercare Advice for Tulip Verona:

  • Get your bulbs in the ground as soon as you can 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 posts 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.
