    Liven things up in mid- to late spring with this collection of fiery tulips.

    In each collection you will receive the following bulbs:

    Tulipa 'Purple Prince'
    Glorious purple flowers, which have a lilac flush on the outer edges of the petals, open as they mature to reveal a dark interior with a golden yellow eye. Held on stout stems above the grey-green foliage, they will hold up well in poor weather conditions and make excellent cut flowers. Suitable for planting with most shades of pink, blue and lilac. Grows to 35cm tall.

    Tulipa 'Candy Prince'
    Classically-shaped soft lilac blooms, which are finely laced with a deeper hue, are offset perfectly by the silvery green foliage. Relatively short-stemmed, it is ideal for bedding displays in the border, but it is also deserving of a place in pots and containers. A good mixer, it can be teamed with stronger purples, shades of pink or silver. Grows to 35cm tall.

    Tulipa 'Sunny Prince'
    Topping sturdy and relatively stout stems, the soft butter-yellow flowers, which have a stronger yellow flush towards the outer edges of their petals, have a flame-like quality that seems to light up the spring bedding scheme. 'Sunny Prince' is ideal for hot-themed borders as it will mix easily with most shades of orange and red - and it also does well in patio pots. Grows to 35cm 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.

    Buy one collection of 30 purple, pink and yelllow tulips (10 of each) for £12.99 Alternatively, buy 2 collections (60 bulbs) for £25.98 and get another collection FREE (30 bulbs) - that's 90 bulbs for only £25.98

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

I would forgive the beautiful lily beetle almost anything apart from eating my lilies! Despite my best efforts, they seem to return year after year at this time to munch irregular holes in leaves, flowers and anything else they can find called lily – actu

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.
