Signature is a pure white Fringed Tulip. Their beautiful and artistic flowers work well in floral arrangements and help create a stunning focal point in the garden. Previously linked to the Parrot Tulips, Fringed Tulips differ due to their clearly defined crystalline fringe as opposed to the deeper cut feathering effect. Signature will flower in April to May and will grow to 45cm.
Tulips will thrive in almost any type of soil where there is reasonable drainage. During the growing season they like plenty of moisture but the roots must not stand in water. Be careful not to feed tulips during the growing season as this will produce 'leggy' plants. Plant from October until late December 4 inches deep and approximately 5 to 6 inches apart.
Tulip failures are mostly due to damage by slugs and snails. Apply a slug repellant immediately after planting and repeat at monthly intervals until the plants stand well above the ground.
