Tulips are amongst the most popular of bulbs, valued for their brilliant flower colours and shapes. Plant in autumn for a show of spring flowers. Choose from a large range to suit the situation. Tulips are a must for every spring garden, creating colourful displays in beds, borders, containers and rockeries. These classic beauties are, of course, the perfect companions to spring bedding plants, and they make superb cut flowers too. They are the embodiment of a British spring garden, but did you know that they have their humble origins in the mountains of Kazakhstan?
