I’m currently shopping for Tulip bulbs online. Last year I grew a variety of tall, single Tulips in different colours. They were all pretty successful and Tulips are the perfect early cut flower since they flower in May (or thereabouts) and then you can lift the bulbs and use the ground for something else.
This time I think I’ll go for a limited palette as the multi-coloured approach didn’t really work for me. I’m thinking whites, peaches and purples.
Doubles really don’t look like Tulips to me and the Parrot varieties (the ruffled kind) didn’t do well last year in my garden. So I’m sticking to your classic single. Here are some colours and varieties that I might go for:
I’ll be looking to get them planted over the next few weeks.
Anyone got any other suggestions? Or links to good bulb merchants?
