      Comments about Crocus Tulipa'Tom Pouce':

      I purchased these last autumn and have been rewarded with a display that is the envy of my ( more experienced!) gardening friends. Have been asked by many people for the name of this tulip as the colours are really pretty and unusual.

      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.
