Rhubarb syllabub is one of the very best things about spring and I claim the same of this duo of tulips; chalky, soft and gentle pink, the whopper 'Salmon Impression' chimes with its shorter, quieter relation 'Apricot Beauty'.

This collection contains 10 or 20 bulbs 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.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant outdoors October-December.
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 April
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.
