    Not only will this collection provide an array of gorgeous colours to your borders or pots, but these tulips are also excellent for cutting, so they'll also last well in a vase if kept in a cool room.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

    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 tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Menton'
    Satin-like petals in a sensuous shade of pink, with apricot highlights that become more noticeable around the petal edges. These form graceful, egg-shaped flowers on sturdy upright stems that stand up well to adverse weather conditions. Grows to 65cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Queen of Night'
    These are probably the best loved of the deep purple tulips. Their velvety, dark maroon, cup-shaped flowers, which appear on straight stems in May, are stunning - so they do deserve their acclaim. They work well in borders with a 'bruised' colour theme when planted between other plum-coloured flowers or foliage plants. Grows to 60cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Negrita'
    The petals of this snub-nosed, deep purple tulip have a soft satin finish, and they look stunning when planted en-masse for a bold impact. They are equally good however, when planted next to softer pastel shades (such as Tulipa 'Early Glory'). They have strong stems and large flowers and are quite adept at coping with erratic spring weather. Grows to 50cm 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.

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy

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.

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.
