These spectacular black parrot tulips, one of the darkest varieties currently available, make excellent cut-flowers. To prevent the exotic flowers from flopping they're best planted close together in a sunny, sheltered, well-drained spot.Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
