At Peter Nyssen, we are passionate about supplying only the best quality premium tulip bulbs to the UK making any garden bloom with colour and beauty in spring. Tulip bulbs were instrumental in the creation of the Dutch flower industry and a huge part of our heritage.

Choosing your Dutch tulip bulbs

With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start.


If you want to extend your spring flowering display, choose an early flowering variety such as fosteriana or single early tulips, some mid-season tulips like Viridiflora tulips and finish with double late tulips. This way, you can ensure that you will have beautiful tulips all season long.


If you're looking for a classic tulip with a large and elegant cup shape, our triumph tulip collection offers the widest range of mid-season tulips with single flowers.

How to plant tulip bulbs

To ensure optimal growth, it's important to plant tulip bulbs in the best possible condition for them to thrive, these include:

 

  • Tulip bulbs prefer fertile, well-drained soil
  • Wet soggy soil can cause the bulbs to rot so lightening your soil with a little sand and gravel will do your bulbs the world of good.
  • For sandy soils, it is advisable to add some organic matter.
  • Tulips prefer neutral to alkaline soil and adding chicken pellets can improve the nutrient balance.
  • Tulipa species bulbs like even more freely drained soils except for tulipa sylvestris (the wild tulip) and tarda which require moist soil with some shade.
  • Tulip bulbs should be planted from late October to December.
  • Tulips need to be in the cold ground for at least 10 weeks to flower at their best.
  • Plant your bulbs around 15 cm deep and 5 to 15 cm apart (allow for around 75 to 100 bulbs per square meter).
  • Once the shoots are around 15cm high use a fertiliser such as liquid seaweed every couple of weeks, stop fertilising when the flower buds start to colour.

FAQs

When is the best time to plant tulip bulbs?

For optimal blooms, tulip bulbs should be planted from late October to December. They require a cold period of at least 10 weeks to flower spectacularly in the spring.

How deep should I plant tulip bulbs?

Tulip bulbs perform best when planted about 15 cm deep. This depth helps ensure that the bulbs have enough insulation from the cold and enough space to root properly.

How far apart should tulip bulbs be planted?

Space your tulip bulbs approximately 5cm to 15cm apart. This spacing allows each bulb enough room to grow without competing for nutrients and water.

Can tulip bulbs be left in the ground year-round?

In many climates, tulip bulbs can remain in the ground all year round. In very cold or very wet areas, however, it may be better to lift them annually to prevent rot.

How do I care for tulips after they bloom?

After tulips bloom, continue to water and feed them until the foliage dies back naturally. This helps the bulb store energy for the next growing season. Once the leaves start to yellow, they can be cut back.
