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. It's now available in a beautiful Sarah Raven gift box, all packed ready to give to your gardening family and friends. 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 bulbs 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).
Gift box measures L.33.5cm x W.22.5cm x H.11cm
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.
