Organic botanical tulip bulb mix

Botanical tulips, also called wild tulips, are one of the first tulips ever. They are the extremely strong species that grow in the wild and therefore naturalize very easily in the garden.

We have selected for you a beautiful color combination of two special botanical tulips:

The Tulipa 'Tarda' is a botanical tulip that is also known as wild tulips or specie tulips. It is very popular because it remains approximately 15 centimeters low and produces several flowers per flowerbulb. Each flower consists of six petals that are firm and pointed. The petals have a cream-colored base, often with green or yellow tones. The outer edges of the petals can have a light to dark pink or purple shade, but what really makes the Tulipa 'Tarda' special is the flower shape. The flowers have a star-like shape, with the petals curving slightly outward and having a slightly pointed end.

She is an early flowering tulip and is known for its long flowering period. The flowers bloom in spring, April or early May and add a cheerful and graceful look to flower beds, borders or rock gardens. They are also suitable for naturalization, meaning they return year after year and produce more and more beautiful flowers.

The wild tulip Tulipa hageri 'Little Beauty' has magenta-colored flowers with blue/white markings on the inside of the petals, so that when the flower is opened it looks as if it still has a blue flower in the center of the flower. The flowers have six petals that form a cup-shaped flower and are on short, sturdy stems of 15 centimeters high.

She produces several flowers per flowerbulb and as soon as the sun shines on the flower in March and April, the flowers open with a beautiful, striking star shape, the ends of the pointed petals are slightly bent backwards, with a flower diameter of 5 centimeters.

They are both not suitable as cut flowers, but they do make a great addition to the border, but they are also beautiful in a low bowl, combined with blue grapes, for example!
A gem with a unique color combination that is a joy for pollinators such as bees!

This mix contains 25 of both types, packed separately, so that you can plant them together in groups according to color if necessary. It also gives a nice effect to plant these organically grown tulips together. Just how you want!

How, where and when do I plant botanical tulip bulbs?

The flowerbulbs of the 'Little Beauty' and the 'Tarda' need a cold period. Therefore, plant it in the ground with the pointed side up in the autumn from September to January. For the planting depth, use 2 to 3 times the size of the flowerbulb itself and for the planting distance 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb. In this case that is about 10 centimeters.

Choose a sunny to semi-shady spot in the garden and plant the bulbs in well-drained soil. They prefer a light soil, preferably with average fertility. The soil should not be too heavy or too clayey as this can restrict drainage and cause the bulbs to rot. (It is important that the soil does not remain too moist, especially during the bulbs' dormant period in summer).

Tip: If your soil is naturally heavy or clayey, you can add organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure to improve soil structure and drainage.

Care of the botanical tulips

Give these botanical tulips a light organic feed in the spring, just after the shoots begin to appear. Allow the foliage to die back completely after flowering before removing it. The foliage provides the bulb with energy for the next growing season. The foliage can be cut away after it has turned yellow and wilted, but it also dies relatively quickly on its own.

If the flowerbulbs grow above the ground after a number of years, it is advisable to place them again in the autumn at the correct planting depth. A good guideline is to plant them at a depth of 2 to 3 times the height of the bulb.

Furthermore, they require little maintenance and have the ability to naturalize . They return faithfully every year and also multiply slightly.
