This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

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.

All the tulips in this collection flowered and were long lasting. The substitute variety Mystic van Eijk flowered before the others. Less pleased with purchase of two single variety packs as only 10 out of 15 in each flowered.

Really sad display, didn't do well at all, came up at different times, very few came up at all. Very disappointing. I bought 2 collections, neither did well but this was the worse one.

Bought these last Autumn and planted densely on my allotment. The plan was to pick the flowers for home. They have been flowering for a couple of months now and have been absolutely beautiful. Older allotmenteers who have had plots for thirty years or so have said how fantasy tulips are. They were so nice I didn’t pick them after all but enjoyed them in situ.
