    In each of these collections you will receive the following bulbs.

    10 x Tulipa 'Turkestanica'
    A beautiful species tulip, that can be left in the ground for several years, where it will gradually form a naturalised swathe of early spring colour in borders or meadows. The flowers themselves are mainly white, but usually with a subtle pink or greenish yellow flush - and they tend to be longer-lasting than many of the tulips commonly used as seasonal bedding. As they open, they resemble yellow-eyed stars that seem to hover amongst the grey-green leaves. A stunner! Grows to 30cm tall.

    20 x Scilla mischtschenkoana
    In late winter or early spring, star-shaped, pale blue flowers, which have a darker stripe along the length of their petals, appear with the narrow basal foliage. Grows to 15cm tall.

    10 x Narcissus 'Sailboat'
    Each stem can carry up to three sweetly scented flowers, so when planted en-masse, these jonquils not only look good, but smell great too. They have creamy white, windswept petals and a cup, which fades from butter to cream as it matures. Plant plenty so you have some for cutting too. Grows to 30cm tall.



  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. 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.
