Everyone is familiar with tulips in pots, and many of the bulbs we sell are well suited for the purpose, but a prevailing wind will swiftly flatten any top-heavy parrot tulips, even with support, while low growing flowers will be lost to view in a pot at the end of a walkway. Dwarf tulips like Little Red Riding Hood work well in pots close to the house, in a rockery or at the front of any border. The Single Early types tend to only grow up to 40 cm tall with sturdy stems so they are fairly weather proof and visible from afar, especially if you grow them close together for moral support. Tulips in a border look like jewels and you don't need many to make an enormous impression; use Lily shapes, like Ballerina and the fringed Crystal Star or any of the opalescent Darwin varieties to glow in a border. Our Naturalising Collection is brilliant in lawns, verges or surrounding fruit trees in an orchard.
