    In each collection you will receive the following:

    5 × Tulipa 'Light and Dreamy'
    Exquisitely shaped flowers with sugar pink petals that have a lustrous blue flush on the outer edges. The colouring is quite distinctive, and it makes these Darwin Hybrid tulips (which are excellent for cutting), very easy to blend with blue and pink shades.Grows to 60cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Salmon Van Eijk'
    Topping tall and sturdy stems, exceptionally large, goblet-shaped flowers, which are a subtle blend of pink and apricot, create a lavish display in bedding schemes in mid- to late spring. Plant generously, so you have spares for the vase.Grows to 55cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Van Eijk' (PBR)
    This is a stunning tulip to add to the spring border. A stately grower, it has sturdy stems, that stand up well in poor weather conditions, topped with very generously proportioned reddish pink flowers, which tend to last longer than the average tulip. Also, being a Darwin hybrid, there's a good chance that it will flower over several years. Grows to 55cm 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.
