    Maureen is one of our favourite single tulips, so we are thrilled to introduce this double form. It shares many of its parents fine qualities; ie. beautiful colouring, good resistance to bad weather and a long flowering period, but this is has many more petals. Taller than many of the other double lates too, it is incredibly elegant and mixes well with many others.

  • Garden care: From September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy

Planning ahead with Bulbs
