    In each collection you will receive the following:

    20 x Tulipa 'Apricot Beauty'
    The sturdy stems of these single, early-flowering tulips stand up well in wind and rain, and in March and April are topped with soft, salmon pink, cup-shaped flowers, each with an orange margin. Robust and versatile, they're perfect for planting in a sunny, sheltered, well-drained border or a large patio container. Plant them where you can best enjoy the subtle but sweet scent of the blooms. Grows to 45cm.

    20 x Anemone blanda 'White Splendour'
    In spring, large white daisy-like flowers (to 4cm across) emerge above the attractively lobed, dark green foliage. Each petal has a pink flushed reverse and they all sit around a boss of yellow stamens. Ideal for underplanting shrubs or trees. Grows to 15cm.

  • Garden care: Select a pot that has adequate drainage holes and prepare your compost. Bulbs growing in containers prefer a freely draining mix, so a 3:1 blend of John Innes No.2 and grit is ideal. The aim is to plant each bulb at approximately three times its own depth, allowing one bulb width between each. When ready to start planting, fill the pot with a layer of compost and starting with the largest bulbs, place them on the top of this layer with their shoot facing upwards. Infill with compost, gently firming down around the bulbs until reaching the correct level for the next set of bulbs. Continue in this fashion until all the bulbs are planted and then top up the compost to within a few centimetres of the top of the pot. Water thoroughly and then place the pot in a sunny spot. During the winter months, you will need to water occasionally to prevent the compost from drying out completely, but watering should be increased while the bulbs are actively growing and for at least six weeks after they have finished flowering. As soon as the new growth appears, start to feed them with a high potash fertiliser such as Tomorite. This should be continued at 7-10 day intervals until the flowers have faded and the foliage has started to die back. Resist the urge to remove the faded foliage (or tie a knot in it) until it has turned yellow and dry. The tulips should be replaced each year, but the other bulbs can be lifted, stored and replanted the following autumn.
