  • Planting and Care Guidelines:
    Select a pot that has adequate drainage holes and prepare your compost. Bulbs growing in containers prefer a freely draining mix, so a 3:1 blend of John Innes No2 and grit is ideal. The aim is to plant each bulb at approximately three times their own depth, allowing one bulb width between each. When ready to start planting, fill the pot with a layer of compost and starting with the tulip bulbs, place them on the top of this layer with their shoot facing upwards. Infill with compost, gently firming down around the bulbs until reaching the correct level for the next set of bulbs. Continue in this fashion until all the bulbs are planted and then top up the compost to within a few centimetres of the top of the pot. Water thoroughly and then place the pot in a sunny spot. During the winter months, you will need to water occasionally to prevent the compost from drying out completely, but watering should be increased while the bulbs are actively growing and for at least six weeks after they have finished flowering. As soon as the new growth appears, start to feed them with a high potash fertiliser such as Tomorite. This should be continued at 7 - 10 day intervals until the flowers have faded and the foliage has started to die back. Resist the urge to remove the faded foliage (or tie a knot in it) until it has turned yellow and dry. The tulips should be replaced each year, but the other bulbs can be lifted, stored and replanted the the following autumn.
