    Lilac and white always look fresh together. This collection offers you plenty of spring colour for the garden - and then some for the vase!

    In each collection you wil receive the following bulbs:

    Tulipa ' Cummins'
    A tall tulip, which is great for adding to bedding displays where you need a little height. The lavender purple, cup-shaped flowers have a white fringe to each petal, which means they combine well with all shades of puple, lilac-pink or white. The flowers are quite long lasting and are good for adding to cut arrangements. Grows to 60cm tall. supplied as 10 bulbs

    Tulipa 'Lilac Crystal'
    The lilac petals of this beautiful tulip have a pearly sheen and a paler margin that has a spikey-looking serrated edge. This gives the flowers a textural quality, that offers and interesting contrast when they are planted with other tulips that have a more traditional flower. Their colouring is easy to mix, working well with most shades of pink as well as stronger purples and white. Grows to 55cm tall. supplied as 10 bulbs

    Tulipa 'Mount Tacoma'
    A very old variety that has deservedly remained a firm favourite through the years. The buds are pink and green, but the long-lasting double flowers open to a creamy white. The flowers are quite tough and are held aloft on sturdy stems late in the season. Grows to 40cm tall. supplied as 10 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.

    Buy one collection of 30 white and pink tulips (10 of each of 'Cummins', 'Lilac Crystal'' and 'Mount Tacoma') for £19.95. Alternatively, buy 2 collections for £39.90 and get another collection FREE (30 bulbs) - that's 90 bulbs for only £39.90
