When I received some of the bulbs had mould on, I brushed it off and persevered due to the price. Planted with plenty of grit as a bulb lasagne as per videos but were a slight disappointment. A few blind bulbs, also some with twisted foliage. La belle epoque came through well but the other two were hit and miss. I will try them again next year having lifted and treaTed bulbs with fungicide. Fingers crossed as I adore this colour palette

A beautiful mix of colours, one or two soft bulbs on arrival which were discarded and one or two blind bulbs once bloomed. The rest were beautiful. Here's hoping for a reliable display next year

A beautiful collection

A lovely combination of subtle colours and shapes on sturdy stems. Even the leaves are lovely. Really pleased with the effect.

I bought this collection and planted around December in two pots. One is in full bloom right now and the other one is just catching up which means I am going to have these beauties for longer and it is incredibly beautiful. The flowers are large and gorgeous and the colours are simply stunning. Bees seem to be very attracted to these too, especially Bruine Wimpel tulip
