More Details

Tulips collected with succession in mind, to flower from March with 'Salmon Impression' to 'Virichic' in April and early May. This will give you tulips to admire in pots or borders for a good six-week stretch.

This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Green Star'
  • Tulip 'Virichic'
  • Tulip 'Tres Chic'
  • Tulip 'Salmon Impression'

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 March - April
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.

Reviewed 29th May 2018 by Vivienne McCartney

These are strikingly beautiful tulips. The salmon pink flowers of salmon impression were huge but my absolute favourite is Virichic. They are all good and have proved to be long lasting flowering over the two month period as promised and have given a lot of pleasure.
