This collection of 30 bulbs will make an eye-catching display in either a sunny border or a patio pot.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained, moderately fertile soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No.2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 16/17

    In each collection you will receive the following bulbs:

    10 x Hyacinth orientalis 'Woodstock'
    A fabulous hyacinth with deep magenta-purple blooms that are delicately scented. Plant in mixed beds in the garden or in pots on the patio so you can move them around for best effect. A great colour for mixing with deep purples or plum shades to create a 'bruised' border. Grows to 30cm.

    20 x Tulipa 'Negrita'
    This snub-nosed deep purple tulip with beetroot-purple veins and a satin finish is bound to draw attention. They look stunning planted en masse but are equally good planted next to softer pastel shades. They have strong stems and large flowers and are quite adept at coping with erratic spring weather. Grows to 50cm.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
    • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
