November, Tulip planting time, is JUST around the corner. Sarah Raven et al have huge discount on their Tulip stocks, likely for a very limited time only.
This weekend is a time slot for buying a bag or two of them and getting them in the ground.
Plant pointy end up at least double their own depth, though some say at least 30cm. If your soil is heavy add some grit to the planting hole to stop them rotting.
Once flowered leave the leaves on for at least 6 weeks to rejuvenate the bulb.
I plant them as a cutting annual and if they come back year after year so much the better.
