Want to find out more about tulips before you buy? Traditionally a spring flower, the tulip expresses a colourful brightness, filled with sunshine. Following the rose and the chrysanthemum, the tulip is the world’s third most popular flower, with more than 3000 different registered varieties of cultivated tulips grown around the world. Tulips are planted in the autumn, to flower in the spring. They generally cannot be grown in a hot climate, as they need a cold winter and cold nights to grow. While tulips are often thought of as a flower synonymous with the Netherlands, the tulip actually originated in Hungary, and was later brought to Turkey, where it became known as a symbol of life and fertility.
As sturdy as they are colourful, tulips make great flowers for cut-flower arrangements, lasting for around ten days if cared for correctly. Trim the stems and any excess foliage and place the tulips in a tall, clean vase of cold water and cut-flower food. Arrange the tulips so that each bloom has enough space to breathe, and place the blooms out of direct sunlight. Be sure to keep your tulips well watered and change the water every few days. Now, sit back and enjoy the colour!
