Product Description

Tube Rose Flower Bulbs:
The Tuberose, also known as Polianthes tuberosa, is a night-blooming. Because of its sweet, heavy scent, the Tuberose has a long history in the world of perfumery and has been grown in the south of France for centuries.

Description
The Tuberose does not bear any relation to the rose, but its name is said to derive from the plants slender stem from which grows a tube resembling rootstock. This stem often grows 3 feet (91 cm) high and bears flowers of a pink-cream shade, each with six sword-shaped petals.

If you’re a gardener who loves scent, you’ll flip for tuberose. This bulb produces tall flower spikes with numerous tubular blooms and a fragrance that is rich, sultry and seductive.

For outdoor beds:
Choose a location where the soil drains well. If there are still water puddles 5-6 hours after a hard rain, scout out another site. Or amend the soil with the addition of organic material to raise the level 2-3 inches to improve the drainage. Peat moss, compost, ground bark or decomposed manure all work well and are widely available. Tuberose will not thrive in waterlogged soil.

Procedure:
1.Fill your containers with good quality, well-drained soil. Tuberose must not sit in waterlogged soil.
2.Plant the entire clump with 2-3″ of soil above the top. Place clumps 8-10″ apart.
3.After planting, water your tuberose generously to settle the soil around the bulbs. Roots and top growth will form within a few weeks. Water regularly during the growing season if rain does not occur regularly; 1-1.5″ of total water per week is a good general rule of thumb.
4.When in bloom, feel free to clip stems for bouquets. This will not hurt the plants and will provide a supply of extraordinarily fragrant flowers.

Q: Will tuberose grow well in hot humid kerala? Should it be grown in full sun or partial shade? Canit be grown as bedding next to coconut trees? and finally since these are bulbs - can they be sent through India Post? Thank you in advance!
— Asked by Paru on July 14, 2015
A: Hi Paru. Thank you for your query. Tube rose grows well in the hot and humid climate of Kerela. It needs good sunlight of at least 4 hours to bloom profusely. They may not flower in the bedding next to coconut trees as adequate sunlight might not be present. Yes, they can be safely sent via India Post.
Q: Since the tuberose bulbs have sprouted... may be flower bulbs are the way to go! So will you at any time be selling canna and gladioli bulbs?
