Dwarf tulip to go go with Estella Rynveld

This question was asked by
Eileen R –

I need a dwarf tulip to complement Estella Rynveld. What do you suggest and do you have it in stock?

Hello there

We have the following dwarf tulips that I think would work very well with Estella Rynveld:
Tulip Heart’s Delight (harts11402)
Tulip ‘Concerto’ (harts11401)

Or for a bolder contrast:
Tulip ‘Stresa’ (SKU1762111)

Lily storage and the cold weather ahead

I have received my order of lily bulbs from you today, and read they must be planted asap, but the soil is frozen with forecast of snow. How long can I keep them as they are, and where is the best place…
Many thanks

Hi there,
This is a really good question for all our customers receiving their lilies this week. You’re right, the weather is looking rather cold with the risk of snow so it’s not ideal to get out in the garden to start planting. Don’t worry though, your lilies will be absolutely fine if kept somewhere cold (e.g a garage) for a few weeks until the wintery spell has passed and you can get our and enjoy your garden!

Thanks for a great question.
