Bulb Size: 12+Val Bourne spotted this and felt we had to offer it! Cairo is a fairly recent introduction in the tulip world and has been bred for its shimmering, bronze-infused, orange flowers. The classic shaped flowers are scented and appear in April and are great for adding depth to orange planting schemes. Alternatively if you are feeling bold, try mixing it with reds and purples.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.
