Planting tulip bulbs
Tulips are spring bloomers, the bulbs bloom in the spring and the tulip bulbs can be planted in the fall, from October to December. The tulip bulbs need a cold period to bloom. Therefore, plant them before the first frost. If you plant the tulip bulbs in the fall, you will enjoy the beautifully colored flowers in the spring, in March, April and May. Plant the tulip bulbs about 10 centimeters apart. For the planting depth, use approximately 3x the flower bulb. Tulip bulbs can be planted in the ground manually. It is helpful to use a bulb-planter.

Different types of tulips
We offer a wide range of tulips. For example, there are single and double tulips, fringed tulips, botanical tulips, lily flowering tulips or the striking parrot tulips. But also early- and late-flowering tulips, so you can enjoy this well-known flower from March through May. To make your choice you can use the filter; choose for example the flowering period, color, group or height.
Single early tulips
Recognisable by the classic tulip shape. These tulips bloom early and have shorter, sturdy stems. As a result, these tulips can withstand quite a bit of wind. Single early tulips are good for planting in containers, borders and flowerbeds.
Single late tulips
Even later in spring you can still enjoy the classic tulip shape in many colours. Single late tulips have sturdy, long stems, which makes this tulip a good cut flower.
With large cone-shaped flowers, the Triumph tulip brightens up any garden. After opening, the shape changes to oval. The Triumph tulip was created by crossing early and late single-flowered tulips. These tulips have strong stems, making them perfect for the garden and as cut flowers.
The smallest tulips of its kind are botanical tulips. These tulips are quite different from the larger tulips, that's because they stay low with smaller flowers. The big advantage of these tulips is that you don't need to take them out of the ground, as these tulips are suitable for perennial flowering and naturalising. They can flower along the edge of a border or as low ground covers. Also suitable for in pots.
Darwin hybrid tulips
Darwin hybrid tulips are single-flowered tulips, with sturdy, long stems that can take a punch. These tulips develop large cup-shaped flowers and bloom in mid-season. Many of these varieties, under the right conditions, return the following year.
Double early tulips - Peony tulips
Double early tulips are suitable for a spot at the front of the border or in pots because of their slightly shorter stems. These early-flowering tulips have beautifully filled flowers and are therefore also called pioentulips.
Double late tulips - Peony tulips
Double late tulips are real eye-catchers in the garden with their well-filled flowers and long stems. The peony-flowered tulips bloom around May and provide prolonged flowering.
A characteristic feature of Fosteriana tulips is their leaves, which are often a little grey-green. This gives a nice contrast to their brightly coloured large flowers. These early-flowering tulips vary in height and good results have been achieved for perennial flowering with this variety.
You can recognise these tulips by the beautiful serrated edge along the flower. Often this serrated edge is also in a different colour. These tulips are mid- to late-flowering and suitable as cut flowers.
Double fringed tulips
The double fringed tulips are very decorative because of the double flowers with a beautiful serrated edge. These tulips flower for a very long time and are suitable for both pots and the garden.
With fringed and twisted flowers, Parrot tulips, are true works of art in the garden. These tulips flower in late April/early May and as soon as the full sun shines on them, the petals open fully. Did you know that almost all Parrot tulips carry a hint of green in their petals?
Double Parrot tulips
Like single Parrot tulips, double Parrot tulips stand out for their beautifully fringed and twisted flowers. Only, the flowers of double Parrot tulips are just a bit more filled. Double Parrot tulips are long-flowering and give you garden an exclusive look.
Greigii tulips are part of Botanical tulips. With their short stems, these early-flowering varieties are great for containers and borders. Have you noticed that these tulips have striped leaves?
Low-growing tulips that are great for bedding and borders. Tulips from the kaufmanniana group are early-flowering and highly decorative due to their broad and spotted leaves. In sunlight, the petals open fully and the heart of the flower will surprise you!
Petals curved like a French lily are characteristic of Lily-flowered tulips. The long elegant stems and pointed flowers add grace to your garden. These tulips love a sunny spot and look great in the garden as well as in containers.
It really is possible, multiple flowers on one stem. These tulips instantly give your garden, border or container a filled look as they can produce as many as 2 to 5 flowers per stem. They look like mini bouquets! Multi-flowered tulips stand on long stems and bloom in April/May.
Viridiflora tulips can be recognised by the green flames that appear in the petals. Some tulips are almost completely green, while others have just a hint of green. The sturdy stems make this tulip a real asset to the garden. These tulips combine beautifully with green plants. They flower in April/May.
History of the tulip
The tulip is inextricably linked to the Netherlands. The Dutch climate is therefore excellent for the forcing and cultivation of tulips. Although we consider the tulip a typical Dutch flower, the tulip did not originally come from our country. The roots of the tulip lie in Turkey. The arrival of a cargo of tulip bulbs in Antwerp in 1562 marked the beginning of European tulip cultivation. The first documented specimens were planted by the Fleming Carolus Clusius in the Hortus botanicus in Leiden. He grew the bulbs to conduct research on them, but the tulip bulbs were not sold. However, after a break-in at the Hortus Botanicus, the tulip quickly spread throughout the Netherlands; the trade in tulip bulbs had begun. However, the prices asked for one tulip bulb were gigantic. Not only the tulip bulb itself, but shares in the bulb were traded. Often people received a piece of paper with their purchase stating that they were the owner. Eventually, the government intervened and normal cultivation and trade slowly developed.
