More Details

The tulips here are all selected to be beautiful – of course – also relatively short, so they are perfectly suited to a container or windowbox. And they are all double, peony-flowered varieties, which means, as sterile forms, they flower for twice as long as many.

In this jam-packed and showy combination we overplanted the tulips with Narcissus 'Baby Boomer' for its chive-like foliage and scent as well as Geum 'Mai Tai' and Helleborus 'Merlin' to prolong flowering from January to June.

This collection contains 5 or 10 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.

Border Position Container Garden
Soil Type Broad Tolerance
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Well-drained
Height 45cm (18in)
Spacing Plant pointy end up 10-15cm (4-6in) deep, 8cm (3in) apart. Layer bulbs to a depth of 25-30cm (10-12in) if room is tight. Remember to add plenty of grit if your soil is heavy. For containers, space bulbs 1-2cm (½-1in) apart if planting in a single layer, give them more room, 2-3cm (1-1½in) if planting in a bulb lasagne.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant outdoors October-December.
Care Tips Don’t plant tulips until mid-late October. Plant pointy end up 10-15cm deep, 8cm apart in borders (less in containers). You can use a mycorrhizal Bulb Starter. After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
Flowering April - May
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.

Service was good however I was disappointed to learn that tulips do not flower so well after the first year and the need to repurchase. What is more disappointing is that when I queried cusyomer services with regard to my terribke blooms I was informed that it looked like frost damage!!!

Erratic flowering, flower heads varied from very small to large enough for stalk to bend over. Tulip Brownie was not included due to crop failure.
