Triumph tulips are due to the hybridisation between the single early tulips and late flowering varieties. A very popular group of tulips because they offer an extensive range of colours and colour combinations. Tulips make a stunning show when they are planted in groups of 10 or more. Ideal for bedding schemes and they are often used in formal plantings in the stately homes which open to the public. Triumph tulips will come into their own just as the daffodils are giving up their domination of the early spring.
When planting tulips ensure the soil is loosened to a depth of 20cm and is free draining. In the heavier soils add grit and rotted humus material to give extra drainage. Plant tulips with the pointed bit upwards at a depth of 15cms and 10cms apart. When planting in containers planting depth can be reduced to 10cms and distance apart to 5cms if required.
Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them. Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.
Tip: Best to plant tulips when the ground starts to cool down which is often in October, although planting earlier or later will not effect performance. Tulips do benefit from using bulb starter when first planting.
