Do you have any tulip bulbs in stock?

Hi Mike

Tulips need to be planted in the Autumn for Spring flowering. Please check back in the summer when you can pre-order them for delivery in Sept – Nov.

My recent order

This question was asked by
Patrick L

Very many thanks for my order of Casa Blanca lilies, I was most impressed with the quality and condition of the bulbs. They are now planted in a site formerly occupied by a favourite of mine, echiums! They succumbed to the really bad frosts in February.
I have only just discovered your website, very impressive indeed. Shall send an order for various items in due course.
My thanks.

Hi Patrick

Thank you for your lovely comments – we really appreciate it.

Have a good day.

Unscented Lilies

Good Afternoon

I hope you can help me to locate unscented lillies as fresh flowers please as due to allergies, I simply can’t tolerate any scented blooms in the house any more. I live in Torbay, Devon.

Hi Anne

The Asiatic lilies are the one that do not have a scent. We have lots of different asiatics you can choose from to grow from bulb and then cut for fresh flowers in your home.

Lily bulbs

I bought 3 exquisite bulbs at Chelsea dome years ago. The were deep red and called Resolute. Do you stock them? Or know who does? I can’t locate them online….

Hi Di

Unfortunately, we haven’t got that Oriental trumpet lily available this year – we do have the following that are very similar:
Lily ‘Largo’ (SKU176841)

Lily ‘Carbonero’ (SKU17684)

Lily ‘Fujian’ (SKU17777)

All equally gorgeous in colour, height and scent.

Not grown Lilies for years, you have such a lovely variety… I’m tempted but do they have to be dug up at the end of the year, like dahlias and begonias or can they be left in the ground. I’ve just dug up a bamboo plant, which took over the garden, and would like to plant something in its place.

Hi Shirley
No lilies can stay where they are over winter. They can withstand minus 20 degrees so they are absolutely fine.

Dear Hart Family,
I received your parcel safely today – beautifully packed, and larger than I had expected…. but when I opened it I was beyond delighted! I have never received such a generously large dahlia bulb in all my years of gardening! An absolute knockout! Thank-you so much for such beautiful healthy-looking bulbs. I am longing to see the results. Warmest wishes,
Ruth Richardson

You’re very welcome Ruth – thank you for taking the time to email us.

Daffodil bulbs

This question was asked by
M. Ann knight –  

Tips on how and when to plant spring daffodil bulbs soil etc and how to look after them.

Hi there

Daffodils bulbs need planting in the autumn for spring flowering. Find a location with well-drained soil. Daffodils will not thrive in water-logged areas.
Daffodils like to receive full sun for most of the day.
If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs with their pointed tops 10-15cm (4-6″) below the soil surface with smaller bulbs placed more shallowly than larger ones. Space the bulbs 7-10cm (3-4″) apart. Allow 4 to 5 bulbs per square foot.
If planting in Pots, find a large container and fill it with good-quality, well-drained soil. Ensure there is adequate draining holes.
Plant in the Autumn, September through November.
After planting, water the Daffodils well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
Daffodils will flower early Spring.

After flowering has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don’t cut it off.
The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future.
Water as needed during active growth periods.
By mid summer the leaves may yellow and die back.
Foliage may be removed at this point.
