Description

Tulip Viridiflora Green Spirit is a superb colour combination because it stems from the popular ‘Spring Green’. The flowers of Greenspirit are white and green with star shaped flowers. Viridiflora tulips are an unusual group of tulips and sought after by flower arrangers because the petals of the different varieties have varying amounts of green, which really makes them stand out.

Cultivation instructions

This variety is well suited to grow in containers, tubs and in borders. It is traditional to plant tulips in October when the ground starts to cool down. If this is a concern do not worry if you plant them earlier or later as they will still grow well. Tulips benefit from using bulb starter when first planting and ii is ideal to loosen the soil to a depth of 20cms before planting because that will be helpful to root development.

Plant tulip bulbs 15cms deep and 10cms apart in free draining soils. In the heavier soils add grit and rotted humus material to give extra drainage. Look really good if planted in groups of 10 or more.

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:

Tulips prefer to be planted in cold soils if possible so planting October onwards is recommended. Tulips do not perform as well in their second year so often are treated as annuals. After flowering let the leaves die back and dig up the bulbs, replant big bulbs that will flower the following year.
