Narcissus 'Bridal Crown'
Forming in loose clusters at the top of the stems, the 4cm wide, creamy-white flowers have a central ruff of orange-yellow segmets, which resembles an ember-like eye. The scent of the blooms is sweet and strong, which makes them all the better for patio pots, lining a pathway or cutting. Grows to 40cm tall. Supplied as 10 bulbs.
Tulipa 'World Peace'
The pinky-peach petals of this Darwinh hybrid tulip fade to yellow at their edges creating a softly glowing effect. This is a mutation from Worlds Favourite, which is a strong and vigorous grower. The flowers are held on sturdy stems, and it can hold its own in poor weather conditions. Grows to 50cm tall. Supplied as 10 bulbs.
Hyacinthus orientalis 'Carnegie'
Upright dense racemes of pure white, bell-shaped flowers appear in late spring. These are carried on stout stems and have a delicious fragrance. Grows to 25cm tall. Supplied as 5 bulbs.
- Garden care: From August to November plant the bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart in a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil. While actively growing, keep them moderately well watered and remove the flowers after they have faded. At that stage a balanced liquid fertiliser can be applied each week for 4 weeks before they die down.
