The tulip is a stalwart of the late-spring garden. There are hundreds to choose from, including traditional, single cup-shaped varieties, double-flowered cultivars and those with elegant, goblet-shaped flowers. Tulips grow best in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. However, they don’t always come back the following year and are therefore often best treated as annuals.

The erect and lance shaped flowers of Tulipa ‘Fly Away’ are a bold red with broad and warm orange edges to the petals. Grow in full sun or partial shade. Tulip bulbs can be lifted and stored over winter if required and practical. Allow foliage to die back naturally first, then lift and clean bulbs. Trim back roots and dry for 24 hours before storing in a dry and cool place. Ensure any damaged or diseased bulbs are discarded to prevent the spread of fungal diseases.
