Tulip bulb shortage?

This question was asked by
L. Tilling

Hi,
Is there a shortage of tulip bulbs this year? Everywhere I have tried to buy any says they are out of stock, literally every garden centre & nursery! Also online sites too. What has happened?
Kind regards
Linda

Hi there Linda

As you’ve experienced, you can’t really purchase tulip bulbs this time of year as they require planting in the Autumn (ideally after the first frost to kill off any virus that may be found in the ground). They will then flower in the Spring. Our tulips will be available to order in the Summer and we will start to dispatch them at the end of September. Hope this helps.
