Vogelvry has a large range of Tulips including Specie, Fosteriana, Parrot and Darwin Hybrid Tulips. Tulips require a sunny well drained position in the cooler area's of Australia, while in the warmer parts a semi-shaded position is best. Bulbs may be cooled for 6-8 weeks in the crisper of the refrigerator before planting. Rockery and Specie Tulips do not need refrigeration and can be left in the ground for many years provided that no excessive irrigation takes place during the dormancy period. Tulip bulbs should be dug when leaves become yellow and start to die off. The bulbs can then be dried, peeled and stored (at room temperature) until cooling or planting time. For more information on growing tulips, see our Culture Notes (these are also included with each order).
