Fresh Tulips in red, white, pink, and yellow brighten up South African homes during the winter months. They are a cheerful sight when it’s looking a bit gloomy out, and thrive both indoors and outdoors. In a word, Tulips are gorgeous – we all know this to be true. So, need we give you more reason to love Tulip bulbs? We’re pretty sure you’re shaking your head, but we’ll do it anyway. Here are our top five reasons for loving these winter wonders.
Tulips are the no-fuss, ready-to-plant type of bulb. But they do need proper treatment and care. If you’re keen to plant your own Tulip bulbs, follow our planting tips below for healthy growth:
Tulip blooms come in many colours, ranging from the classic red to dark shades of purple and even black. Their vast range of colours makes them a versatile plant, fitting in seamlessly with pretty much any garden or home colour palette. Tulips of different colours can be paired to create stunning arrangements – a couple of our favourite combinations are pink, purple and orange, and yellow, orange and white.
Due to their low pollen count, Tulips are among the most allergy-friendly flowers in the world. So if you get a sniffly nose around flowers like jasmine and daisies, rest assured you won’t need to whip out the tissues to enjoy these!
Tulip flowers pair excellently with other winter bloomers like freesias. So if you’re keen to cut flowers from your garden, later on, and arrange them in vases with other seasonal varieties, Tulips are the perfect bulb for the job.
