    The delicate-looking tulips in this collection originate from mountainous regions in Central Asia and are in fact extremely tough. Unlike many of the other types of tulips, they can be left in the ground where they will come back year after year, forming good-sized clumps if conditions suit them. Plant the bulbs 10 -15cm deep in late summer or autumn, allowing a similar distance between each, in a sunny spot with reasonably fertile, freely draining 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.

    Tulipa 'Little Beauty'
    From amongst the lax clumps of long, slender leaves, upright bowl-shaped flowers emerge on short, sturdy stems. The hot pink petals often have a green flush on their outer edges, while the inside eye is a mix of creamy white and rich blue. Grows to 15cm tall.

    Tulipa saxatilis(Bakeri Group) 'Lilac Wonder'
    Bowl-shaped mauve-pink flowers, with a paler interior and a luminous, well-defined eye, appear in profusion from mid-spring. Compact in habit, they are ideally suited to pots or windowboxes, as well as filling gaps towards the front of the border. Grows to 25cm tall.

    Tulipa tarda
    Shiny, lance-shaped green leaves form loose clumps, which in early to mid-spring, are crowned with white-tipped yellow flowers, often with a reverse that is flushed with red and green. Happiest in richer soils, its compact habit makes it ideal for pots. This tulip is one of the few that do not need to be lifted each year and if planted in the ground, it will spread to form good-sized clumps. Grows to 15cm 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.

Tulip Fire

Tips of emerging leaves appear brown and scorched, and often shrivel and rot. The foliage soon becomes covered in a grey fungus. Brown spots appear on the leaves and flowers, which may also rot.

Lily beetle

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it

If the budget’s tight or your plot is tiny, potting up a large container will make much more of an impact. It has to be rugged, either frost-proof terracotta, wood or stone, to withstand hard weather. Your compost has to be equally meaty and should conta

Tips for your tulips

The most useful garden tulips arrive in the second half of April or in May, after most of the daffodils have flowered. For this reason it’s a good idea not to mix the two because by the time your tulips flower, the daffodils will be past their best.
