Reviewed 7th April 2018 by Vera Atkinson

I haven't grown tulips for a while - as I have not had much luck with good blooms. After planting with Bulb Starter in the planting baskets I have magnificent plants with plenty of buds - cant wait for them to open. Would recommend this products and Sarah Ravens bulbs.
