‘Love Dance’

One of the new generation of Viridiflora varieties crossed with the lily-flowered forms, to give elegant shape, good length of flowering and exceptional perenniality

new

'Queen Jewel'

This flowers for a good five weeks, like all the doubles, and earns its keep five times over. I truly love it

new

'Big Love'

Perfect name for a pretty perfect tulip, it stands well over 2ft tall, with huge flowers like circus plate spinners

new

‘Apricona’

I fell in love with this longflowering, soft apricot tulip, in the beautiful bulb drift combination designed by my friend Carien Von Boxtel at the Keukenhof

new

‘Holland Beauty’

Early-flowering, this opens the colour of a fruit sundae and gradually fades with great elegance. It’s a newfound favourite.

 

‘Concerto’

Recommended to me by a Dutch garden designer friend, this is an exceptional tulip – very early flowering, perennial, excellent for naturalising and lovely for the first spring vase of flowers. I’m a big fan

new

‘Crème Upstar’

A double, softly scented tulip which looks as rose-like as any tulip you’ll find.

new

‘Silk Road’

With a lovely soft, aromatic scent, we fell in love with this tulip last spring, every flower slightly different, with the lightest stipples of deep pink over white

‘Time Out’

A cartoon of a tulip – as a child would paint, I loved these in our trial last spring, sturdy, cheery and long-lasting

‘Tubergen's Gem’

A new species clusiana hybrid, which looks like you might just come across it on a mountain walk in Crete; simple and yet truly spectacular

new

‘Estella Rijnveld’

I remember seeing a terracotta pot planted with these 40 years ago and thinking it was one of the most luxuriously beautiful things I’d ever clapped eyes on

new

‘Disarono’

Tall, elegant crimson velvet flowers with a golden heart, like the richest silk brocade
