Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Plant 'Prinses Irene' tulip bulbs as soon as possible after receipt, in the garden, in a pot or window-box. If not the tulip bulbs must be kept in a frost-free area. Plant the bulbs in a hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. For example a bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. Planting distance for 'Prinses Irene' tulips is around 7 cm. Loosen the soil with a fork and plant with the point upwards and roots down. Refill the hole and avoid walking over planting area. Plant your bulbs individually with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger areas, make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more flower bulbs, the more beautiful the effect. Plant the tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs or up to 50 bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.
    'Prinses Irene' tulips in pots
    'Prinses Irene' tulips also thrive well in pots or window-boxes. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro-pellets on the bottom of the pot. For extra colour in the pot, plant low-growing anemones or forget-me-nots just above the tulip bulbs, which will flower beautifully below the tulips.

  • Care
    Tulip bulbs that have not yet been planted in the garden are sensitive to frost but once planted out in the garden, they are perfectly hardy.
    Tulips planted in pots are more sensitive and will need to be protected in one of the following ways:
    • Store your potted tulips in a frost-free area that doesn't get too warm - they do need the cold.
    • Wrap the pot(s) in bubble wrap for extra protection.
    • If you line their pot(s) with bubble wrap before adding soil and planting your bulbs, your tulips will already have some protection.
