Description

The flowers of Tulip Hot Pants are delightful because they are a creamy white heavily suffused with violet. Tulip Hot Pants is ideal grown in groups of 10 or more in the garden or containers because we think it is such a stunning addition to the garden.

Cultivation Instructions:

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 heavier soils add grit and rotted humus material to provide extra drainage. Plant tulips with the pointed bit upwards at a depth of 15cms and 10cms apart. If you are planting in containers the planting depth can be reduced to 10cms and distance apart to 5cms.

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.

Care tips:

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.

These tulips work really well in containers and all parts of the garden look good when planted with mid season daffodils or with the early flowering Alliums.
