It is a perfect spring day……….mild, sunny and calm.
I have been wandering around the garden and looking at my tulips(above). I am a tulip fan……………
but I wish I could grow them more successfully.
I have just been looking at Sarah Raven’s website. Sarah is a hugely knowledgeable gardener and tulip
collector, amongst other plants, in the UK. I have been gazing and lusting after all the different varieties
she has for sale.
We have lost so many bulb suppliers in New Zealand over the last few years, and our selection for purchase
has decreased significantly. The photography on her site is pure eye candy, borders and pots filled to the
brim with exquisite blooms. She also has excellent information on growing tulips, I wish I had read this before
mine were planted. I suspect where I have gone wrong is, I did not plant them deep enough. Their stems are
shorter than they should be and spindly, so, if you have any growing tips I would love to hear from you.
So today, I am sharing the love for tulips.
