More Details

This is THE naturalising tulip par-excellence, with beautiful pointy, elegant flowers followed by almost as pretty seedpods. Throw a handful of bulbs out over the grass and plant them just where they fall, to create a sward worthy of a Persian bulb field. You can add in scillas and chionodoxas as here.

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.

Care Tips Don’t plant tulips 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.
Flowering March
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and soak for 8 hours. This helps keep the stems straight
