There is no orange tulip like this – proper vermilion, pretty much the colour of Heinz tomato soup and one of my favourite colours for contrast in the whole world. Beautiful with purple, fantastic with acid-green, spectacular with brilliant pink, and knock-out with crimson, we’re planting more and more of this in the Oast Garden for flowering this spring.

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.
