A tremendously unusual Tulip. Its pointed petals are a brownish red that open to display a broad yellow banding around the edge. An unusual sight in the garden and mixes well with bold red varieties. A deserving holder of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit. Being a cross between Single Early Tulips and later flowering varieties Gavota has the advantage of boasting strong weather hardy stems at a height of 40cm and long flowering lives making it excellent for both the garden and cut flower displays.
Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.
After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
