More Details

A bulb combination by my Dutch garden designer friend, Carien Van Boxtel which I went to Keukenhof to see last spring. A sea of apricot and cream, with a splash of mulberry, this has refined and sophisticated shapes and colours for two months through. And it is a very perennial collection. Grow this right by your back door to enjoy it for months not weeks, or fill your pots and window-boxes with a life-enhancing mix.

This collection contains:
  • 25 bulbs of Tulip 'Apricot Foxx' Mix
  • 25 bulbs of Tulip 'Concerto' Mix
  • 25 bulbs of Tulip 'Ronaldo' Mix
  • 5 bulbs of Camassia leichtlinii 'Sacajawea' (v)
Type Perennial
Border Position Ground Cover (Scattered)
Soil Type Broad Tolerance
Scent Scented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Well-drained
Height 90cm (36in)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting The Tulips should be planted pointy end up 10-15cm (4-6in) deep, 8cm (3in) apart. For a naturalised drift appearance mix the bulbs in a wheel barrow and scatter them over the ground and plant where they land (with a little editing).
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 soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.
