How to plant Tulips

  • Find a location with well-drained soil. Tulips will not thrive in water-logged areas.
  • Tulips like to receive full sun for most of the day. However, some varieties can tolerate shady areas too. Check with the individual variety.

Planting Tulips in the Garden

  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs with their pointed tops 12cm below the soil surface. Allow 4 to 5 bulbs per square foot.
  • Plant in the Autumn; September through to November.
  • After planting, water the Tulips well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
  • Tulips will flower early Spring.

Planting Tulips in Pots

  • If planting in Pots, find a large container and fill it with good-quality, multi-purpose compost. Ensure there is adequate draining holes. Again, plant 12cm below the soil surface.
  • Plant in the Autumn; September through to November.
  • After planting, water the Tulips well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
  • Tulips will flower early Spring.

How to plant Alliums

  • Plant Alliums in the Autumn for Spring flowering.
  • Choose a location to plant your Allium Bulbs, they like to be in full sunlight and well-drained soil.

Planting Alliums in the Garden

  • Once you have found the perfect spot in your garden to grow your Alliums, you need to dig holes in the flower bed that are three times the diameter of the bulb. For example, if the bulb is 5cm (2") in size then it needs to be planted 15cm (6") deep.
  • Plant the bulbs about 20-30cm (8-12") apart. For impact, plant in groups.
  • Alliums work well in rockeries and crowded gardens as they don't take up much space.
  • Add horticultural grit to heavy soil to improve water drainage. 
  • The Allium bulbs need to be planted pointy end up.
  • Water the bulb well once in situ.
  • To help the soil drain well it is also beneficial to spread mulch, wood chips and organic matter over the entire planting area.
  • Alliums will flower around May/June.
  • Cut the Alliums back at the end of their blooming season. They will then continue to grow in your garden year on year with very little maintenance.

Planting Alliums in Pots 

  • Plant Alliums the same depth for pots as in the garden. Plant three times the diameter of the bulb. For example, if the bulb is 5cm (2") in size then it needs to be planted 15cm (6") deep.
  • For a garden with limited space, you may want to produce a fuller display of spring flowers by layering your bulbs like a lasagne. Simply plant your bulbs deeper to start with, with the largest or latest flowering bulbs further down, moving to the smallest and earliest flowering in the top layer. The shoots from the lower bulbs will find their way around the other bulbs. If you are planting the Alliums first, allow 10cm (4") of soil underneath the bulbs.
  • Add horticultural grit to heavy soil to improve water drainage. 
  • The Allium bulbs need to be planted pointy end up.
  • Water the bulb well once in situ.
  • To help the soil drain well it is also beneficial to spread mulch, wood chips and organic matter over the entire planting area.
  • Alliums will flower around May/June.
  • Cut the Alliums back at the end of their blooming season. They will then continue to grow in your garden year on year with very little maintenance.

How to plant Narcissus

  • Find a location with well-drained soil. Narcissus will not thrive in water-logged areas.
  • Narcissus like to receive full sun for most of the day.

Planting Narcissus in the Garden

  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs with their pointed tops 10-15cm (4-6") below the soil surface with smaller bulbs placed more shallowly than larger ones.
  • Space the bulbs 7-10cm (3-4") apart. Allow 4 to 5 bulbs per square foot.

Planting Narcissus in Pots

  • If planting in Pots, find a large container and fill it with good-quality, well-drained soil. Ensure there is adequate draining holes.
  • Plant in the Autumn, September through November.
  • Plant the bulbs with their pointed tops 10-15cm (4-6")
  • After planting, water the Narcissus well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
  • Narcissus will flower early Spring.

Care Instructions

How to care for Tulips

  • Deadhead the flowers during the season before the petals fall off.
  • After flowering has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don't cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future.
  • Water as needed during active growth periods.
  • By mid summer the leaves may yellow and die back. Foliage may be removed at this point.
  • Some tulips flower well for one year and then need lifting out of the soil and carefully stored if you want to use them again. Once everything has fully died back, you can lift them and store them in a dark, dry, airy place over summer, allowing the air to circulate around them. They can then be replanted in the Autumn. 

How to care for Alliums

  • Add a potash feed to enhance growth and strengthen the bulbs for flowering year after year.
  • Allow flower to die back and remove any dead foliage in early Summer.
  • Remove any dead stems that become detached from their bases.
  • Alliums are hardy and can therefore be left in the ground all year round.
  • Keep an eye out for any diseased foliage.
  • Seldom need support.
