Description

This combination of shapes and colours reminds me of driving through the tulip fields of Holland with the showiest of polychrome rows stretching off as far as you can see, undiluted celebration of the tulip itself and hard to resist. Like a mini Keukenhof, I filled our whole cutting garden with these and picked from them to my heart’s content.

This collection contains 10 or 15 bulbs each of:
  • Tulip 'Time Out'
  • Tulip 'Queen Rania'
  • Tulip 'World's Favourite'
  • Tulip 'Spryng Tide'
  • Tulip 'Unique de France'
  • Tulip 'Purple Heart'

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

Don’t plant tulips until mid-late October. Plant pointy end up 10-15cm deep, 8cm apart in borders (less in containers). You can use a mycorrhizal Bulb Starter. After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
