Tulipa Clusiana var Tinka
Naturalising Tulip. A striking bronze gold contrasted by rich red alternate on the outside of the petals. Growing to 35cm Tinka is incredibly popular. Limited supply this season.
The elegance of the Tulip family simply can not be overlooked! Beautiful blooms carried on strong stems appear in early spring and last for a number of weeks.
Tulips need a full sun position, but can tolerate some dappled light. Prepare your beds to a depth of 20cm, making sure the soil is light and fluffy. Plant the bulbs with the 'fat' end down at a depth of 6cm. Allow 10cm between each bulb, however a less full result can be achieved if you choose to plant further apart.
If growing your Tulips in a pot, select a high quality potting mix that is free draining. Some gravel in the base of the pot will assist with any drainage issues. Ensure the bulb is well fed and watered right up until dormancy.
Tulips DO NOT require refrigeration in cooler areas, and are happy to naturalise in the ground for many years. Feed your bulbs as they come into bloom, and make sure you leave the foliage to fully die down - this feeds and grows NEXT years flower.
