Organic woodland tulips

The organically grown Tulipa 'Sylvestris' , also known as the woodland tulip or wild tulip, is a unique tulip species that is often found in wooded environments. This tulip's blooming period usually begins in early spring, making it a welcome addition to the spring garden. The flowers of the Tulipa 'Sylvestris' are small to medium sized and have 6-8 soft, yellow petals that curl slightly outward, giving them a playful and attractive appearance.

What makes the woodland tulip really special is the long, slender stem that emerges from the flower bud. This sturdy stem can reach a height of 25 to 40 centimeters, allowing the flower to protrude beautifully above the green foliage.

A striking feature of the Tulipa 'Sylvestris' is its scent. The flowers emit a sweet, pleasant scent that fills gardens and flowerbeds with a wonderful aroma.

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

It is best to plant the flowerbulbs in the ground from September to January. For the planting depth, use 2 to 3 times the height of the bulb and for the planting distance, use 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb. In the case of the Tulipa 'Sylvestris' this is approximately 10 centimeters. Place the flowerbulb with the pointed end up in the planting hole.

The woodland tulip thrives best in well-drained soil. It prefers a slightly moist soil during the growing period, but the soil should not be too wet or too heavy to prevent rotting of the bulbs. The woodland tulip grows well in different soil types, including sandy soil, loam soil and clay soil. The most important thing is that the soil is not too compact and has good drainage.

They feel especially at home under trees, in wooded environments or in the edges of shrubs. Choose a spot where they get enough sunlight in the spring before the leaves of trees and shrubs fully develop.

Care of the woodland tulip

Remove dead flowers to prevent seed formation. Allow the leaves of Tulipa 'Sylvestris' to wilt and turn yellow naturally after flowering. This ensures that the nutrients return to the bulb for the next flowering cycle. Avoid cutting off the leaves prematurely, as this can affect the health of the flowerbulb.

Origin of the woodland tulip

The origins of Tulipa 'Sylvestris' lie in the wilds of Europe, particularly in areas such as the Mediterranean, the Balkans and parts of Central and Western Europe. It is a native species that naturally occurs in forests, grasslands and mountainous areas and belongs to the Stinzen plants.
