Description

One of the things I love most about tulips is the way they push on into the end of spring, so that in all the glories of May, with apple blossom frothing in the trees and cow parsley below, you can still get full-whack beautiful tulips like this strawberry mousse collection. Thinking of a spring party, or if you just want abundant flowers for the house, this one’s for you.

This collection contains 10 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Grand Perfection'
  • Tulip 'Green Wave'
  • Tulip 'Negrita Parrot'
  • Tulip 'Slawa'
  • Tulip 'Green Spirit'
  • Tulip 'Double You'

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.

Care Tips

After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
