Stretch the Season of Colour with Tulips

Tulips are well known as burst of variety and colour in the spring.

They are easy to grow and provide beautiful focal points and borders in your garden as well as a stunning cut flower. Why not maximize the amount of tulips next spring by making sure to plant bulbs that will bloom in Early, Mid and Late spring. Mixing in the combination of tulips in the same place will ensure you have a continuous amount of beauty in your garden all spring. Here are a few of my favourite suggestions:

Early Spring Blooming
