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.

Good quality bulbs. Planted in two pots. The colour combination was just as we ordered and gave much pleasure. We saved the bulbs for one more season.
As with so many things - it depends on the growing season.

Service very good. Bulb colours and quality were so different from run of the mill colours usually obtainable from my local shops.

Beautiful!

The combination of these 3 tulips together is gorgeous! I have them in two pots and every time I see them either through a window or up close they make me smile. The photo on the website doesn't really do the colours justice and the mix of shapes is great too. I will definitely buy further collections if they are all as well thought through as this one!
