Product Description


The ‘Tinka’ tulip and I have a four year history on the farm. While some bulbs have made it and some have not, I am glad to say that the ‘Tinka’ tulip has multiplied and bloomed year after year. I am sure the gophers would have eaten it had they been able to reach them. Growing them in the black bulb crates elevated above the ground, we have safely preserved them. Every year the ‘Tinka’ manages to produce blooms despite living in a confined space where they seemingly love my neglect. This response will most likely be the same with all species tulips as it has been with the other five varieties that we have trialed. However, the ‘Tinka’ tulip rises to the top as one of our favorites on the farm.
For more information on tulips in the South and what you can do to help them survive, please see our general “Tulip” information here.
