Lovely as window ledge and living inside table decorations, these fine-looking, Brighton-rock ‘Lady Jane’ tulips remind me of wild species varieties I’ve found in Crete.
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.
