I have just received my bulbs and wonder why I can't plant tulips now with the others and why I should wait until October to plant them .

Because tulips are more susceptible to the tulip fire virus if the are in the ground in the warmer autumn months - i have always been told to wait til november. Store them somewhere cool and dry til then, and make sure they are not in a plastic bag or they are likely to rot. A paper bag or mesh sack is best.

Wait till November CLER.
