A classic bulb lasagne here, with a huge amount going on in a small space and so ideal for those with not much garden. I love the combination of boiled sweet tulip colour here, with globe artichoke foliage, along with the fine arching leaves of Iris reticulata (as pictured here) to give you something to look at and enjoy from early February through to summer.This collection contains 5 or 15 bulbs each of:
- Tulip 'Annie Schilder'
- Tulip 'Purple Dance'
- Tulip 'Sarah Raven'
- Tulip 'Negrita'
- Tulip 'Vincent Van Gogh'
Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).
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.
Tulip petals are all edible. We scatter them over salad and use some petals dipped in tempura batter and served with a spring garden Frito Misto. Tulip 'White Valley' is a favourite for this.
After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
