I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Creme Upstar Tulip Bulbs
Crème Upstar Tulips
One of the more beautiful multicoloured tulips, Crème Upstar is a bit like Joseph's technicolour dreamcoat. The colours you find are cream, yellow and pink. They look as if they have been applied by an Impressionist, but like Joseph's coat, they change. The cream and very pale pink of the new flower move towards gold and mid pink as the bloom gets older. A wonderful late double tulip and a prized addition to our range of tulip bulbs for sale.
The stems are sturdy, and the flowers which appear in late April/May are fully double and sweetly scented.
