Tulip 'Vovos' is unavailable due to a crop shortage, we are replacing it in this collection with Tulip 'Silver Parrot', another soft and feathery variety.

I adore this new colour range – soft, blousy, romantic and supremely beautiful – a passionately recommended mix of scale, shape and colour.

This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:

If you'd like to give this as a gift, we will send it out in our lovely Sarah Raven hessian sack, tied with ribbon, along with a gift card and envelope. Remember to type in your gift message at the checkout for it to be included in the card.

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.
