At Tulip Store you are assured of the highest quality!
We distinguish ourselves with the following top quality aspects:
- We only work with the largest available size bulbs.
- Everything is delivered 100% genuine kind.
- Each variety is provided with a unique Tulip Store tag.
- Tulip Store buys in to a selected group of the best growers
LARGEST AVAILABLE SIZE BULBS
Tulip Store only works with the largest available size per variety. The size differences arise from the periphery of the bulb in centimeters. After the harvest the growers sell a circumference of 10 centimeters and larger and put back in the ground bulbs with a circumference of less than 10 centimeters. Tulips are sorted in sizes 10/11 - 11/12 - 12/+ and 14/+. Tulip Store only sells the largest available size per variety and that means for almost every variety size 12/+, meaning the bulb has a circumference of at least 12 centimeters. Just a single tulip grows easily to size 14/+ and so we sell those kinds in size 14/+. With other providers are often smaller sizes offered which will give smaller flowers or sadly sometimes not even a flower. In smaller sizes, the characteristics of the tulip are also less visible. For example a peony tulip will be much less peony and a parrot tulip almost do not have any parrot shape. Below the differences of bulbsizes are shown.
ALL KIND OF REAL 100%
At Tulip Store you get everything you buy 100% true to variety. If you buy for example the red Kingsblood then we deliver this one and not another red tulip with other characteristics which is cheaper in the market. Unfortunately sometimes this comes from other providers. Flowerbulbs of course remain a natural product. If the harvest and/or delivery will be considerably less then we expected we will deliver a similar replacement with a minimum value of 150% of the purchased product included a letter.
UNIQUE TULIP STORE TAG
In each bag is a unique Tulip Store tag included. This tag can be inserted into the soil after planting the flowerbulbs so after a few months you still can see where and what you have planted.
SELECTED GROUP OF THE BEST GROWERS
We only buy from a selected number of growers which year after year deliver the best quality. The director of Tulip Store, Michel de Bruine, visit already 18 years many growers each year. All our varieties are selected on the basis of disease resistance, flower size and other specific characteristics. It also matters what grower grow a certain variety. At the Tulip Store Trial Garden many varieties and mixes are being tested every year.
