More Details

I planted these three bulbs together in a layered bulb lasagne last autumn at Perch Hill, one variety on top of another. It looked fantastic for six weeks! The narcissi comes first in March and then the two tulips, with 'Comet' looking good into May.

This collection is made up of 3 bulb varieties each of :

Our 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.

If you'd like to give this as a gift, we will send it out in our lovely Sarah Raven hessian sack, tied with ribbon, along with a gift card and envelope. Remember to type in your gift message at the checkout for it to be included in the card.

Genus Tulipa, Narcissi

Care Tips Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in; this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down - this allows the bulb to store more food. Plant Narcissi anytime from August - November. They are very tolerant bulbs.
Flowering March - May
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. Be careful mixing Narcissi with other flower types as their stems give off a compound that is toxic to other flowers and soak their stems in warm water before displaying to stop the 'goo' from running out.

I bought this collection last year and was delighted with the long lasting and changing display it produced, even when planted by a novice like me.
Would highly recommend.

Really beautiful collection. Starting with the small daffs that don't get blown over in the winds, followed by the dazzling tulips. Would highly recommend. Great vibrant orange tulips.

The Best Ever Display

In all my years I have never had such a fantastic, changing and full display from the pots by my front door. It started with the narcissi back in March and the tulips only faded at the end of May. Even in the awful weather we have had this year, this collection shone through. I will be putting in a bumper order this year.
