Triumph Tulip 'Gwen'

Find Them Here...

  • J.Parker's

Hope you all had a lovely Easter, we had a very chilled Easter with a bit of garden DIY thrown in for good measure! Which got me thinking that I needed to show you more of how the garden is coming on...

Last Autumn I bought a whole bunch of bulbs from J Parkers including the pretty Triumph Tulip 'Gwen', they are all now in full bloom...

Tulip Gwen opens in ivory white and slowly develops a delicate pink to purple blush at the edge of her flower. The two tone effect is both delicate and striking. To enhance the colouration try planting alongside a pure purple variety. For the traditional tulip flower shape Triumph Tulips are unsurpassed in popularity, their sturdy stems stand up well to bad weather they are a long lasting cut flower. Height 50cm. Flowers from April well into May.

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.

After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
