Buy Tulipa 'Margarita' double early tulip bulbs: A vibrant scented tulip

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

    The petals of this showy tulip are a rich shade of magenta, becoming paler towards the outer edges. They form good-sized bowl-shaped blooms, which have a discreet but sweet perfume. Plant them near a seating area or doorway, where this can best be appreciated, and mix them with purple, blue and pale pinks. Double early tulips are tough and robust so are also ideal for planting in windy areas, and they are also one of the best tulips for pots and windowboxes.

  • Garden care: From September to December plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering deadhead 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.

  • Humans: Harmful if eaten; skin allergen; Pets: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten

Bloomed earlier than expected but beautiful


All planted bulbs appeared and were beautiful in bloom. Their info strated they flowered late April, not sure if it was the unusually warm March this year, but they actually popped up and bloomed late March through ealy April and had finished by Easter. Unfortunately I had planned these with other varieties in a 'bulb lasagne' to be the last flowering and instead I got a gorgeous display with all bulbs together. Loked stunning but obviosuly shorter lived display than I had planned.




Poor quality


I have purchased few varieties of tulips from crocus but few variety didn't flower at all and some of them one or two flowered. I also purchased tulips from different suppliers and had no problems.

Beautiful colour, look good in pots on patio.




Easy to grow double Tulip


This tulip did really well in pots mixed with other Tulips. The 'double' flowers were large and lasted well in both pot and vase.The colour is deep and faded gracefully as the flowers went over.

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.

If the budget’s tight or your plot is tiny, potting up a large container will make much more of an impact. It has to be rugged, either frost-proof terracotta, wood or stone, to withstand hard weather. Your compost has to be equally meaty and should conta

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.
