When you think of Holland you think of tulips! Every year thousands of people from all over the world come to our little country to admire these beautiful flowers. Now bring the Dutch glory into your own home with the Tulipa Estella Rijnveld. This tulip is a beautiful, classic parakeet tulip that grows between 30-40 tall. The flowers are very special with their deep red stripes on the white fringed flowers, making them look like they are flaming! Do you have a balcony and do you like to usher in spring with your own tulips? No problem! In fact, they can also be planted in a pot. Plant the bulbs between September and December and you can enjoy your beautiful tulips in May.
The best time to plant the bulbs is when the leaves start to fall from the trees. The soil will have cooled down enough by then. The tulips can be planted at a depth of about 15-20cm in loose soil. The bulbs should be planted 10cm apart from each other. Tulips like a spot in the sun or semi-shade. When planted in solid soil, tulips can withstand all weather conditions. When planted in a pot, it is best to place them in a cold shed during extreme frosts.
The bulbs have a circumference of about 11/12cm when delivered.
