More Details

A collection of four tulips in soft, warm, gentle colours which I now love as much as the rich Venetian tones. We chose this collection to go on the front of our Diary for 2018.

Please note: Tulip 'Sanne' will be replaced in this collection with Tulip 'Elegant Lady' due to a shortage of stock. This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.

Care Tips Don’t plant tulips until the cold weather has set in - this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Dip the bulbs in Bulb Starter when planting and mulch with manure. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down; this allows the bulb to store more food.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and allow to drink with the stems held vertical for 8 hours. This helps keep the stems straight.

Really sad display, didn't do well at all, came up at different times, very few came up at all. Very disappointing. I bought 2 collections, neither did well but this was the worse one.

Bought these last Autumn and planted densely on my allotment. The plan was to pick the flowers for home. They have been flowering for a couple of months now and have been absolutely beautiful. Older allotmenteers who have had plots for thirty years or so have said how fantasy tulips are. They were so nice I didn’t pick them after all but enjoyed them in situ.
