La Belle Epoque is a tulip that is highly sought after due to its lovely flower colour. They open as a old copper pink becoming pinkish apricot with age, simply unique. Double early tulips are ideal for growing with single early tulips, they are strong groing and the flowers are long lasting. Cultivate soils to a depth of 25cms and plant bulbs 10-15cms deep and 10cms apart. Grow in groups of 10 or more for the best effect. When planting in containers plant 10cms deep and 5cms apart with a minimum of 7 per container. Plant tulips when soils arecooling down which is normally October although they are best in the soil if timings do not fit.
