Collection of Early Single Tulips

The Early Single tulips are in full cry after the dwarf Greigii and Kaufmanniana tulips and are the classic egg shaped flowers so loved by the Dutch Tourist Board. That said, they are strikingly beautiful in their own right and come in a range of colours that are brilliant enough to stand alone but equally make for wonderful colour combinations. Each variety is bagged separately. This collection includes the rich plum purple of Purple Prince with his satiny petals; the pale mauve Candy Prince who is sweet but never sickly; Apricot Foxx where the extra x tells you that it is a super-special flower; Diana, a virginal white paeon to the Roman Goddess of hunting and to end with, Christmas Sweet, a whiter shade of pink tulip. Dreaming up combinations of this lot will keep you busy for hours and it will be worth every minute of it.

Brilliant April Borders

April really is the month for these flowers but even with those April showers and energetic breezes you can remain confident that your Single Tulips will remain upright on their strong stems. Layer these bulbs in pots with other bulbs that will come on later - check out some of the really frilly fringed tulips or even the exotic range of parrot tulips that we also stock. But Early Single tulips also get our vote for use in the garden popping up in borders when most other plants have still shut up shop. Experiment with the range of colours in this collection against different textured and coloured foliage to see what amazing accent plants tulips can be. Or just grow great clumps of tulips for the sheer delight of their rainbow colours and incredible reliability.

Without the good offices of a certain ambassador de Busbecq in Constantinople who had the wit to recognise that the tulip cultivated for so many years around Turkey had the potential to transform gardens in Europe too, we may never have got to the point where the tulip industry is a multi-million pound concern and the number of varieties increases every year. Holland is recognised as the prime mover and shaker in this world and with over 3000 different tulips to choose from we defy anyone not to be able to find one they love.
