    In each collection you will receive the following:

    25 × Muscari latifolium
    This is such a great little plant that in summer 2005 it was voted as the International Flower Bulb Centre's official bulb of the year. The bottom two-thirds of the flowers are coloured a very dark blue and appear near black in certain lights. Each spike is topped by a tuft of striking bright blue flowers giving it a two-tone effect. Its leaves are broader and flatter than most other grape hyacinths and they tend to wrap themselves around the stem of each flower rather than just jut up. It is a small plant that packs a big punch when planted in big, naturalistic drifts. Mix it with other spring flowers in an orchard or meadow - try planting it with the hoop petticoat daffodil for great colour contrast. Alternatively cram loads into a pot and place it on a sunny patio. Grows to 15cm.

    10 × Tulipa humilis 'Persian Pearl'
    The flowers of this diminutive species tulip are a bright shade of pinkish-purple. Initially bowl-shaped, they open to form stars, which is when the dazzling yellow eye becomes even more noticeable. This is a low-maintenance tulip that does not need to be lifted each year, and can be used to spread through gravel gardens, alpine beds and patio pots. Grows to 10cm.

    10 × Narcissus 'Tete-a-tete'
    Clusters of up to three deep golden yellow flowers with slightly reflexed petals and deep yellow cups appear in March and April above the narrow, strap-shaped leaves. One of the most popular forms, this delightful dwarf narcissus makes a fabulous early spring display for a sunny windowbox. Blue grape hyacinths and slow-growing variegated ivies help to extend the season of interest. Grows to 20cm.

  • 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 deadhead 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
