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 tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in – this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. 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 soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.

Such a fabulous display from my Apricot Beauty collection. They look incredible at the moment. Exotic emperor is so beautiful and I have had lots of encouraging comments. As always your bulbs are top quality and so much bigger and fatter than those bought from shops and garden centres. Thank you. Worth every penny and I am now looking forward to choosing next year,s bulbs.
