Planting and flowering details
Show moreAs soon as possible after receiving the 'Monarch Parrot' tulip bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance of Tulipa 'Monarch Parrot' is about 7 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the tulips one by one with a small trowel or with a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it. The more flower bulbs planted, the greater effect the flowers will have. Plant the tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs, or divide about 25 to 50 flower bulbs evenly over the garden border or flower bed.Tulip 'Monarch Parrot' grows wonderfully in a flower pot or planter. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro granules at the bottom of the pot.
