garden bulbs tulips

simply stunning

or ‘Tulipa’ – at this moment you can really only consider them now for next year or if they are in pots and you wish them to be put outside wait until they have died back and plant them then.

The Tulipa of the Liliaceae family has about 100 species in it genus [family]. I’ll vere away from the horticultural technical knowledge and to the general… they are one of my all time favourites.

Brillant for flowers around the house, extremely attractive and if you were looking to give a gift on a budget [time it for the bithdays next year…] 5 bulbs in a pot and a little compost and Grandad will absolutely love you for it.

If you don’t have any in your garden – put a note on your calender to consider these for the end of this season… and enjoy 🙂

    I love the purple ones! I used to grow them but a gray squirrel would come into the garden every day, bite the heads off, and run off again: any way to stop him doing that?

    A few years back I saw a documentary on television about the history of tulips, and how a few centuries back people paid enormous ransoms and even murdered each other over them. (At first you think, *tulip history*? but it was fascinating.) Is there a book on it all, do you know?
