Well it is the time of the year when all the tulips in the garden put on a show that raises your spirits and puts a “spring” in your step. I have 7 pots of tulips this year with a couple planted using the lasagne method. Where you plant one kind of tulip, put some compost over them then plant another layer of a different bulb.
Here is a pick of the tulips I have flowering this year.
A stunning yellow tulip I particularly like how the way the sepal sometimes sticks to the flower and has a yellow streak like a go faster stripe. This really does brighten up a boring corner in the Garden.
Tulip Pacific Pearl
A tulip with electric orange and purple stripes. This medium size Tulip packs a punch.
Tulip Flaming Flag
I will be honest but I have no ideas while this tulip is called flaming flag. When I think flaming I do not think of a tulip that is lilac with purple streams. This triumph tulip has struggled a bit and I seem to have r a couple of deformed flowers.
This is one of last years tulips. I have planted them directly into a border and along with the next Tulip Ronaldo they seem to be doing well. This one has rich orange colours with a red blush. It also has a hint of honeycombs.
Again one of last years Tulips. Last year this one was much more darker in colour u this year it is a lighter crimson with a hint of light purple. A cracking performer.
Well that is a selection of this years Tulips. If any of you have any suggestions of Tulips for next year write a comment below.

Lovely display. I particularly like Yokohama, such a clear yellow. I think you’ve helped me identify my unknown variety from SoS. They look a lot like your Princess Irene.
You have a good selection.
Belle Époque is a favourite of mine this year.
I wish my Ronaldo had come out the same colour as yours. Mine was purple and definitely not red. Also love Flaming Flag – quite happy with it!!
