Description

A bumper collection to provide colour from early March through to mid-May.

I plant tulip varieties 'Ice Stick', 'Salmon Van Eijk', 'Blue Heaven', 'Continental', 'Salmon Jimmy' and 'Slawa' into the large terracotta pots to give a long succession of interest, and then add varieties 'White Valley' syn. 'Exotic Emperor' and T. sylvestris into ribbed zinc planters to weave through the border. A pot full of the wonderful and gloriously scented Narcissus 'Pipit' completes the look.

This collection contains:
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'White Valley' syn 'Exotic Emperor'
  • 15 bulbs of Tulip sylvestris
  • 15 bulbs of Tulip 'Ice Stick'
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Blue Heaven'
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Salmon Van Eijk'
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Salmon Jimmy'
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Slawa'
  • 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Continental'
  • 15 bulbs of Narcissus 'Pipit'

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.

Care Tips

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