Parrot tulips are very showy and are ideal for bringing colour to your garden in late April/May. They work really well with many other late flowering bulbs and with perennials. They prefer soils that are free draining and of a ph neutral to alkaline. In heavy soils such as clay add grit or well rotted humus matter to help with drainage. In sandy soils add organic matter to help with fertility.
Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms and plant tulips 15cms deep and 10cms apart. They look best when planted in groups of 10 or more. When planting in containers the planting depth can be reduced to 10cms and planting distance 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.
Tulips like to be planted in soils that are cooling down after the summer, so if possible wait until October before planting. If you are not able to do that then plant bulbs as soon as you can after receiving them as they are better in the soil.
