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

Where to start

Tulips are categorised into 14 different groups. Each group has a different flowering time, shape or unique characteristic. 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 some 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.

Tulip varieties

At Peter Nyssen, we offer a wide variety of tulip bulbs to satisfy the needs of any gardening enthusiast. Here are some of our top picks:

Why choose Dutch tulip bulbs

There are so many reasons to choose Dutch tulips, whether you're a professional gardener or just starting out. Some of the reasons include:

  • The unique landscape and sandy soil allow perfect growing conditions for tulip bulbs. With centuries of innovation and investment, the techniques used by Dutch growers are unparalleled by using the land and waterways to naturally manage the bulb’s growing conditions.
  • Millions of tulips are grown every year without the use of Neonicotinoids.
  • Tulips are not only beautiful but also easy to grow. They come in a variety of colours and shapes, making them the perfect addition to any garden. From vibrant reds to soft pinks, there is a tulip for every taste and style.
  • Not only are they visually appealing, but tulips also have a long blooming season.

Depending on the variety, they can bloom from early spring all the way through to early summer. This means you can enjoy their beauty for months on end.

How to plant tulip bulbs

To ensure optimal growth, it's improtant to plant tulip bulbs in the best possible contidion for them the 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 a neutral to alkaline soil and adding chicken pellets can improve the nutrient balance.
  • Tulipa species bulbs like even more freely drained soils with the exception of 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 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.
