The Apricot Beauty Tulip collection flowers from April to May. All our tulip collections come with each variety in a separate bag, so you can decide exactly where to plant each colour.

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.

Such a fabulous display from my Apricot Beauty collection. They look incredible at the moment. Exotic emperor is so beautiful and I have had lots of encouraging comments. As always your bulbs are top quality and so much bigger and fatter than those bought from shops and garden centres. Thank you. Worth every penny and I am now looking forward to choosing next year,s bulbs.

All the bulbs I purchased from you this year, have been of great quality. Lovely plump bulbs, which I am sure will give me a great display next spring.
