    10 × Tulipa 'Menton'
    Satin-like petals in a sensuous shade of pink, have apricots highlights that become more noticeable around the petal edges. These form graceful, egg-shaped flowers on sturdy upright stems that stand up well to adverse weather conditions. A tough and well-established tulip that can be used in seasonal bedding displays or to fill a vase inside the house. Grows to 70cm tall.

    5 × Tulipa 'Slawa' (PBR)
    The petals on this stunning triumph tulip are a deep wine red but each has a broad orange edge which turns a pinkish apricot as the slender flowers mature. Topping sturdy stems they make an elegant and eye catching addition to the seasonal border display. Grows to 50cm 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 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.
