Tough and robust double early tulips are ideal for planting in windy areas. They are also one of the best tulips for pots and windowboxes as they tend to be quite compact. Try mixing the deep pinky red tones of these double flowers with both blush and rich plum shades.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile well-drained soil. Alternatively allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
