This Perfect for Pots Tulip Collection contains a brilliant succession of beautiful and unusual tulips for sun and light shade.

'Flaming Spring Green' is an exquisite tulip, with flashes of red across its green and ivory petals, and it flowers for ages whatever the weather. It's there in full bloom with the early 'Ronaldo' and is still there when 'Jan Reus' comes into flower in late-April.

This collection flowers from April to May, and comes with one of our How to Plant your Bulb booklets. Each variety comes in a separate bag, so you can decide where to plant each colour.

This collection contains 5, 10 or 20 bulbs each of:

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.

This combination is beautiful. The colours compliment each other and provide a stunning display in a large pot. They have flowered for ages. I would highly recommend them.

I love Tulipa 'Spring green' but I wanted a vibrant contrast outside my new art studio, so I decided on the bulb lasagna for pots. The first to arrive were the irises which were a stunning purple then the Narcissi which are so tall, graceful and elegant. Now the tulips are coming out it is absolutely stunning. The 'Ronaldo' is a deep wine colour with unusual shaped petals and a yellow centre which against the lime and cream of 'Flaming Spring green' is a wonderful contrast. There is a flash of wine on the petals too. I would highly recommend.
Sarah has a wonderful way of combining form and colour. A very happy customer.
