More Details

Many people's favourite. Tulip 'Angelique' is a classic, feminine and pretty pink peony-flowered tulip.

Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Remember that they like to be planted in the colder months of late October and November, and if planted in a pot, will need occasional watering.

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.

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 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 and increases the chances of good flowering the following year.
Flowering Late 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.

the service was good but sadly the tulips were poor, the bulbs hardly flowered. When the buds did appear they were malformed and never formed into a true flower.

I bought Angelique last Autumn and planted in tubs. When it flowered it was beautiful and lasted for such a long time - out flowering all the other tulips I planted. Will be buying more.

Planted this tulip in patio pots. Flowered really well. Pretty, blousy, girlie, almost rose like in appearance. Everyone who saw them admired their beauty.

It has to be this one. Feds gracefully, good and strong and previous year's mix in well with new planting this year, just smaller and a little paler, but true to type.
