More Details

The Lady Tulip is very perennial, reliable and easy, ideal for colonising an area of your garden with small yet showy flowers. It spreads rapidly and self-sows, plus is also brilliant for planting in grass.

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.

A lovely small tulip. They are such a cheerful sight brightening up a dull corner. Mine are pale yellow and red although I have seen white and red ones.
