Tulip 'Cairo'

Tulip 'Cairo' is for me the best of all the Single Earlies. It looks like a hanging lantern in a Moroccan souk lit from within, the inside a deep burnt-orange with a brandy-snap orange-brown exterior.

Description

Tulip 'Cairo' is for me the best of all the Single Earlies. It looks like a hanging lantern in a Moroccan souk lit from within, the inside a deep burnt-orange with a brandy-snap orange-brown exterior.

Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.

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.
