Triumph tulips are due to the hybridisation between single early tulips and late flowering varieties. A popular group of tulips because they offer an extensive range of colour combinations. Tulips make a stunning show when planted in groups of 10 or more. Ideal for bedding schemes, they are often used in formal plantings in stately homes which open to the public. Triumph tulips come into their own just as the daffodils are giving up their domination of the early spring.

When planting 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. When 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.
