Planting and flowering details
Show moreAs soon as possible after receiving the 'Queensland' tulip bulbs, they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or a window-box. If not, the tulip bulbs must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost-resistant. Plant the bulbs in a hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A 5 cm bulb for example should be planted in a 15 cm hole. The planting distance between 'Queensland' tulips is about 8 cm. Loosen the soil with a fork and plant the bulbs with the points facing upwards and the roots down. Refill the hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the tulips singly with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups, prepare a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more bulbs planted the more lovely the effect. Plant tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs or divide about 25-50 bulbs evenly over the border or flower bed.
Queensland' tulips in a pot'Queensland' tulips grow well in pots or window-boxes. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro granules in the bottom. Place the bulbs in a hole that is 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A 5 cm bulb should therefore be planted in a 15 cm hole. Planting distance between 'Queensland' tulips is about 6 cm. To protect the bulbs grown in a pot against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water during dry periods.
Show more'Queensland' tulip bulbs are at their best in the first year after planting. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. 'Queensland' tulips grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a shady spot or in full sun.
Show moreThe 'Queensland' tulip has a very distinctive flower and brings a new look to the garden. This late flowering double tulip has lavish blooms on strong stems. The petals are ruffled and serrated, giving the appearance of white frosting. Colours range from salmon to deep pink. The profusion of petals means that these double tulips last longer than most other tulips and they grow to around 20 cm in height.
'Queensland' Tulips as cut flowersThe serrated double tulips make fantastic flowers in the garden but are also great as cut flowers, they last for a long time in a vase. A group of 'Queensland' tulips should not be missing from your cutting garden. If you cut a few stems for a vase, you can enjoy these beauties indoors too! Pick the flowers preferably early morning. Remove the lower leaves and place the stems immediately in a vase full of warm water with cut flower food. The firm stems make these tulips also suitable for using in oasis (floral foam).
