More Details

This Perfect for Pots Tulip Collection contains a brilliant succession of beautiful and unusual tulips for sun and light shade.

'Flaming Spring Green' is an exquisite tulip, with flashes of red across its green and ivory petals, and it flowers for ages whatever the weather. It's there in full bloom with the early 'Ronaldo' and is still there when 'Jan Reus' comes into flower in late-April.

This collection flowers from April to May, and comes with one of our How to Plant your Bulb booklets. Each variety comes in a separate bag, so you can decide where to plant each colour.

This collection contains 5, 10 or 20 bulbs each of:

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.

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.

The white tulips were poor quality blooms and didn't last long. The purple ones were better.
But my order of jumbo plugs of cosmos was very disappointing. Tiny tiny seedlings, a bit battered and only one has survived. I should have returned them immediately.

I love Tulipa 'Spring green' but I wanted a vibrant contrast outside my new art studio, so I decided on the bulb lasagna for pots. The first to arrive were the irises which were a stunning purple then the Narcissi which are so tall, graceful and elegant. Now the tulips are coming out it is absolutely stunning. The 'Ronaldo' is a deep wine colour with unusual shaped petals and a yellow centre which against the lime and cream of 'Flaming Spring green' is a wonderful contrast. There is a flash of wine on the petals too. I would highly recommend.
Sarah has a wonderful way of combining form and colour. A very happy customer.
