    In each collection you will receive the following:

    10 x Tulipa 'Purple Lady' (PBR)
    The sumptuous colouring of this striking tulip is a subtle blend of deep purple with pink and blue overtones, while the petals have a satin-like lustre. It's a truly gorgeous thing - particularly when planted en-masse, although it will add body to a planting scheme with softer pinks and violets. Alternatively, use it to contrast with silvers or chartreusse green - wow! Grows to 40cm tall.

    10 x 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.

    5 x Tulipa 'Evergreen'
    Chartreuse-green is a great colour for the garden, as it offers a wonderful contrast to the stronger purples, reds and plums, which potentially can get a bit heavy without this fresh accent. It also acts as a perfect foil for the cooling whites, so with that in mind we think 'Evergreen' will really help to add impact to the bedding scheme in late spring and early summer. Grows to 60cm tall.

    10 x Tulipa 'Ronaldo'
    Rich, deep maroon-purple with lovely coloured veining make this a spectacular tulip for spring bedding displays. The petals have a rounded shape with pointed tips and have a smoky sheen and silky texture. Grows to 40cm tall.

    Buy the collection of 35 tulip bulbs for only £19.99. Alternatively buy 2 collections for £39.98 and get another collection free. That's 105 bulbs in total, with a saving of £19.99.

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

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.
