More Details

Tulip ‘Harborlight’ is not available due to a crop shortage, we have replaced it in this collection with Tulip ‘Spring Green’, a classic, longstanding and reliable variety.

This collection is as much about the showy striped white foliage from the start of spring as it is about the soft pink, green and white flowers.

This will look splendid on a doorstep or windowbox from February until May – great garden value.

This collection contains:
  • 5 or 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Tropical Lady'
  • 5 or 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Spring Green'
  • 10 or 20 bulbs of Anemone 'White Splendour'

Spacing Plant tulip bulbs pointy end up 10-15cm (4-6in) deep, 8cm (3in) apart. Plant anemones 15cm (4in) apart, 5-8cm (2-3in) deep. Layer bulbs to a depth of 25-30cm (10-12in) if room is tight. Remember to add plenty of grit if your soil is heavy. For containers, space bulbs 1-2cm (½-1in) apart if planting in a single layer, give them more room, 2-3cm (1-1½in) if planting in a bulb lasagne.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant outdoors in October.
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 and increases the chances of good flowering the following year.
Flowering February - May
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper to hold the stems ram-rod straight and leave to drink for at least 3 hours – or overnight. This helps keep the stems straight, but tulips do continue to grow after picking so curves may appear.
