Caravaggio is a wonderful new tulip with cherry red flowers. Double early tulips have very strong stems and as such are ideal in the windier areas of the garden if needed. They are also excellent for rock gardens, beds and borders. Plant in groups of 7 or more for the best effect. Cultivate soils to a depth of 25cms if possible and plant 10-15cms deep and 10cms apart. When planting in containers plant 5cms apart and 10cms deep.
Aspect: Semi shade to full sun
Soil type: All free draining soils. In heavier soils add grit or well rotted humus to help with drainage.
