Why We Love It

Tulip ‘Amazing Parrot’ has ruffled, peachy pink petals with golden edging and warm orange hues on the inside.

These exotic-looking, feathery blooms will unfurl in springtime, provided they’re in well-drained soil.

Use ‘Amazing Parrot’ to fill gaps in flower beds or grow them in flamboyant drifts so you have some to cut and bring indoors.

They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade.

Ideal for beds and borders. Remove flower heads as they begin to fade.

Avoid planting Tulips repeatedly in exactly the same spot that they have been grown in recent years.

Display in groups, these are great for underplanting roses or growing through Muscari.

Planting Calendar

Plant in September, October, November.

Flowers in May.

Planting and Care

Tulips like plenty of sunlight, together with moist and well-draining chalk, loamy or sand-based soil of any pH level.

These bulbs should ideally be planted at a depth of 10cm/4 inches and a distance of 10cm/4 inches.

Into the Ground

  1. Choose a sunny spot that offers some protection from the wind.
  2. Create holes in the well-draining soil that are approximately 10 cm deep.
  3. Add a bulb into each hole.
  4. Cover the tulip bulbs with compost to fill the holes.
  5. Water in the bulbs.

Into a Pot

  1. Fill your pot with compost.
  2. Make a 10 cm deep hole for each bulb.
  3. Place a tulip bulb into each hole.
  4. Add more compost to the pot to cover up the bulbs.
  5. Give it a good water.
  6. Position the pot in full sun in a sheltered spot.
