Antoinette is a Multiflowered Tulip aptly named due to it bearing up to 10 flower heads per stem. Its flowers are described as soft yellow and creamy white, which, once open, has edges of pink which will suffuse down as the flower ages. An unusual May Flowering Variety they may be planted in little groups within the border and are also superb for tubs, displays and make eye catching arrangements as cut flowers. Antoinette grows to 40cm.

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.
