    10 × Tulipa 'Ile de France'
    Glowing red, well-shaped flowers, each with a fine yellowish petal edge, top the stout stems in spring, adding vibrant colour to the bedding scheme. They last well (even in poor weather conditions) and are great for cutting. Mix with rich golds and orange shades, or tuck it in with deep purples for a dazzling display. Grows to 50cm tall.

    7 × Tulipa 'Royal Pretender'
    A flash of orange can really draw the eye and bring life to the border, while structure adds definition. That's what makes this tulip such a valuable addition. It has the classic lily-flowered silhouette, and a wonderfully rich colouring that will partner all the warm shades, as well as bring life to rich purples, plums and near-black. Grows to 55cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Paul Scherer'
    Tulip breeders have been trying for years to create a variety that produces a near-black flower on a tall stem - and here it is! The blooms are large, oval, almost egg-shaped, and sit on top of a sturdy stem in late spring. Plant in bold drifts for big impact, or tone it down with silvers and pinks. This variety has been granted the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Grows to 50cm tall.

  • Garden care: From August to November plant the bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart in a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil. While actively growing, keep them moderately well watered and remove the flowers after they have faded. At that stage a balanced liquid fertiliser can be applied each week for 4 weeks before they die down.
