Red Tulips remind me of my grandfather and every springtime as they appear in the Garden I can get quite emotional. Tulips create colourful displays in all sorts of situations and with colours to suit every taste or emotion, you will be spoilt for choice. Making this collection of designer garden tulips extra special, perhaps they will help you pay tribute to someone special too.

Tulips are a classic English bulb and a perfect companion to early spring perennials, if you can bear to cut them they will last ages in a vase or simply enjoy them from your window as they brave the elements.

Tulips can be found in almost every UK spring garden, yet originate in the Kazakhstan mountains, in the early 17th century, in Holland, prices of the latest bulbs rocketed.  We now have thousands of varieties of Tulips available to choose from and this collection is just one of an amazing range of colours and shapes for you to enjoy.

    Thank you for your amazing tips I am planning to plant a new bed of tulips in the front yard and the mix you show would bed perfect. Any ideas how to keep the pesky squirrels from digging the up?

      Instead of planting them in the garden ground plant them in pond baskets usually used for water lilies, these can be filled with a sandy loam and plunged into the ground. If you have the space to store them you can lift the basket when they have finished and store them for safe keeping until the following Spring.

    Wow!! What a GREAT blog Stephen. Considering the tulip being my beloved flower I also have that “family sentiment” with my Grandmother and the white tulip. We used to get our “Traditional Polish Easter Basket blessed every year at our local Polish Parish St. Adelbert’s. Well, whenever it iwas just my babcia and I and the Spring was right on time (Which it seems to be always in the ” The City of Brotherly Love” -aka- Philadelphia). We would pick a whit tulip kurt of the garden and get it blessed along with the rest of our Easter goodies. That’s brought back a wonderful memory and I Thank you Stephen.
    Warmest Regards,
