Buy Tulipa 'Angélique' double late tulip bulbs: One of the best 'double lates'

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: early May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 11/12

    Delicate, soft pink, double, bowl-shaped flower, flushed with both paler and darker shades of pink in April and May. From a distance, you could easily mistake these tulips for peonies and they are usually one of the last tulip into flower - so a good one to choose if you want to extend a bedding display.

  • Garden care: In 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.

Notes on Tulipa 'Angélique'

"More peony than late tulip - with soft double-cupped flowers in an ice-cream mixture of pink and vanilla-white - softened by a hint of lily-of-the-valley green."

I planted these in pots and they were great - flowered for a long period, very attractive and sturdy.

I love these. Totally over the top tulips. I plant them in pots. Beautifully coloured. They do fall about a bit and this year the wind finished off the flowers prematurely.

This tulip is truly beautiful, with peony-like flowers. I was so glad I ordered these as an 'experiment' as I've planted tulips from other garden centres before that had failed miserably. I'm hoping to get a second showing of these in Spring 2019 & in any case, I'll be buying more of the same bulbs from Crocus to plant this autumn. This lovely tulip managed to survive coastal temperatures & gusty winds with no problems whatsoever. I planted the bulbs into a pot using the very detailed instructions sent with them by Crocus.

I adore these tulips. However, last year I planted over 50 miscellaneous tulip bulbs and every single one was dug up and taken by squirrels. What can I do to prevent a reoccurrance with this years purchases?

Hello, Squirrels can be a real nuisance when it comes to bulbs. We do have a couple of deterrent available - please click on the following link to go straight to them. http://www.crocus.co.uk/products/_/tools/pest-control/squirrels/plcid.767/plcid.783/plcid.970/ I find however that the best method is to plant the bulbs in a deep hole and then back-fill with a little soil. Then lay a piece of metal chicken wire over the top of that and finish back-filling. The bulbs will be able to grow through the chicken wire (don't choose one that has a very small gauge) and if the squirrels dig down, they will hit the wire and may be deterred. Good luck!

Tulip Fire

Tips of emerging leaves appear brown and scorched, and often shrivel and rot. The foliage soon becomes covered in a grey fungus. Brown spots appear on the leaves and flowers, which may also rot.

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it

Tips for your tulips

The most useful garden tulips arrive in the second half of April or in May, after most of the daffodils have flowered. For this reason it’s a good idea not to mix the two because by the time your tulips flower, the daffodils will be past their best.
