Tulips are a must for every spring garden, creating colourful displays in beds, borders, containers and rockeries. These classic beauties are, of course, the perfect companions to spring bedding plants and they make superb cut flowers too. They are the embodiment of a British spring garden, and did you know that in the early 17th century, when 'tulip mania' hit Holland, prices of the recently introduced bulbs soared, some single bulbs selling for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman! Today there are literally thousands of varieties available, in a stunning array of colours and forms.
