    10 × Tulipa 'Esprit'
    This eye-catching tulip is going to add a bit of pizzazz to your borders in spring. Its flowers are made up of lots of gently ruffled petals, which are a lush mix of pink, orange, yellow and green, and each petal has a heavily fringed edge. It's a good idea to grow a few extra of these, so you have some that can be cut for the vase. Grows to 60cm.

    10 × Tulipa 'Dordogne'
    This impressive tulip has larger than average flowers, so forms great goblets of fiery colour on top of its tall stems. A lush mix of orange and pink, with hints of yellow, they make an eye-catching addition to the border, where they will look sublime with bold purples, strong pinks or even yellow. Grows to 65cm.

    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 granted the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Grows to 50cm.

  • 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.

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy

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

Create colourful containers

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.
