Description

I came across Kim Murray (Sears) in a magazine article earlier this year. The interview told us that the ultimate excitement for husband Andy is winning a tennis tournament, whereas, for Kim, it’s when the Sarah Raven catalogue drops through the door! We’ve worked on this tulip collection together with beautiful peach, orange and crimson varieties grown partly at Perch Hill and partly in Kim’s own garden in Surrey. They also grow armfuls of these varieties to fill bedrooms at their spectacular hotel Cromlix, near Dunblane, on the Scottish central belt.

This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Mariette'
  • Tulip 'Doll's Minuet'
  • Tulip 'Black Hero'
  • Tulip 'Queen of Night'
  • Tulip 'Ballerina'
  • Tulip 'Brown Sugar'
  • Tulip 'Orange Princess'

Care Tips

After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally.
