Tulips come in a great variety of colours; these easy going spring bulbs never fail to delight. The best time to plant tulips is late October, November or December. With so many to choose from you are sure to find something to your taste.
Tulips are relatively cheap to buy and easy to grow. They are guaranteed to lift spirits bringing the garden alive after its winter rest.
Even in small groups of pots, tulips make a real impact.
Tulips have a long flowering period, by choosing early flowering varieties you can have blooms in March, these can be followed by varieties flowering in April and May giving many weeks of colour.
Choose an area of grass that can be left untidy for the early part of the year for a stunning effect. The Darwin hybrids are the most reliably perennial.
