Bulb Collection 4 - Narcissus 'Rip Van Winkle' x12, Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) x20, Tulip 'Mickey Mouse' x12 * Commercial size bulbs NOT small pre-packs*
Our new bulb collection consist of 3 sets of exciting spring flowering bulbs. That will brighten any border, patio container or rockery.
This collection includes:
Narcissus 'Rip Van Winkle' - Dwarf Double Daffodil. A show-stopper! This is Sunshine on a stem - and a dwarf stem is the bonus! 'Rip Van Winlke' is a dwarf rockery daffodil which you can grow in sun or part shade and has the most beautiful double golden-yellow flowers with lavishly spiked petals. A very early bloomer that has been around for more than 120 years and is hard to improve on. These strong rebloomers are the best choice for patio containers and rock gardens.
Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) - Deep cobalt blue. These beautiful blue spring flowering bulbs are often taken for granted. I can't get enough blue to contrast with the yellow daffodils at this time of the gardening year. The clumps of blue flowers seem to last for many weeks and provide a welcome addition to many planting schemes. They are hardy, reliable and perfect for either naturalising or formal planting. Will grow in any well-drained soil and can be lifted and divided every three years or so.
Tulip 'Micky Mouse'- EARLY FLOWERING Compact growing - Large & Long Lasting flowers. An entertaining NEW INTRODUCTION providing great entertainment for the kids and for YOU! 'Micky Mouse' is one of the best early flowering Rembrandt-typeTulip. It is short as Rembrandt tulips go, growing only 25/30cm (10 inches) tall, but the blooms are very large in proportion and have flame red and golden yellow flowers. The flowers open wide in full sun, creating cup-shaped blooms that can be more than 12cm (5 inches) in diameter when fully open. The large flame blooms flower for you throughout March and April. 'Micky Mouse' are ideal for rockeries and patio containers because they are short. They naturalise very well (i.e. if you leave them alone, they come back year after year, and even multiply).
Hardy perennial bulbs will reward you year on year. These delightful double early flowering tulips provide you with dazzling spring displays and because of their particularly sturdy stems, stand up very well indeed to our April showers!
