This is one of the best ever tulip collections we've planted together in the garden and in pots in the oast house garden at Perch Hill. Wonderful!
It flowers from April to May, and will brighten up your spring garden. All our tulip collections come with each variety in a separate bag, so you can decide exactly where to plant each colour. Watch Sarah explain why she loves this classic combination of tulips in this video.This collection contains 15 or 30 bulbs, or 1 x 3 litre pot each of:
- Tulip 'Couleur Cardinal'
- Tulip 'Havran'
- Tulip 'Prinses Irene'
Our bulb collections will be supplied with each variety bagged individually. To reduce waste, we no longer collate these into a second larger bag. Your delivery paperwork will list details of the collection you have ordered and the varieties included. Our bags can either be recycled or composted (please check bags for details).
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.
Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.
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.
