More Details

Tulips collected with succession in mind, to flower from March with 'Salmon Impression' to 'Virichic' in April and early May. This will give you tulips to admire in pots or borders for a good six-week stretch.

This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Green Star'
  • Tulip 'Virichic'
  • Tulip 'Tres Chic'
  • Tulip 'Salmon Impression'

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.

Only the very first top layer came out. I was tremendously disappointed by this, and so was my neighbour who also tried the technique. I planted some of the tulips on their own in a pot and they definitely thrived. So I don't think the lasagne scheme worked at all.

Despite being well looked after and in a good position the later tulips did not bloom properly. The heads formed but did not open .

Reviewed 29th May 2018 by Vivienne McCartney

These are strikingly beautiful tulips. The salmon pink flowers of salmon impression were huge but my absolute favourite is Virichic. They are all good and have proved to be long lasting flowering over the two month period as promised and have given a lot of pleasure.
