The Tulip is truly an extraordinary flower. With a past steeped in romance, it has been a muse for art, poetry and passion. The Tulip has obsessed nations, taking flower power to the extreme, and has become known as the Queen of Bulbs. Originating in the mountainous slopes of Turkey, the Tulip is tougher than you think. All our bulbs are pre cooled so all you need to do is plant them in a sunny spot and keep them watered.

Tulips are all about colour. They have been hybridised into a myriad of brilliant, bold hues that can be woven into any garden to great effect.
Their spectacular spring show has made them popular for hundreds of years. Tulips were revered as the symbol of the Royal Court of Turkey as early as the 1500’s. Arriving in the Netherlands in the early 1600’s they turned heads wherever they went. In 1637 a single bulb of the Tulip ‘Semper Augustus’ was more valuable than the most expensive house in Amsterdam. Today they still turn heads and are loved the world over - though now they are more affordable for the average gardener!

Tried and Tested Tulips

Tulipmania might have transpired nearly four hundred years ago but the spirit lives on in gardeners everywhere. This is a top selection that is well suited to the Australian environment. Tulips may have a reputation as ‘difficult customers’ but in most cases this is undeserved. When you buy a bulb the flower is already pre-formed, ready to bloom. All you need to do is plant it into well drained soil in a sunny spot, fertilise and water occasionally, then wait for the show.
