9th November 2022

The day of the Lord Mayor's Show in London is the traditional date for planting tulips. It is always best to put them in the ground later than other spring bulbs - they can even be planted in December if needs be. (Monty Don has admitted to planting them as late as January.) This year, the Lord Mayor's Show will be held on 12th November, so if you are going by the book, this weekend is the perfect time. As with daffodils, a mix of varieties, shapes and colours will give stunning bunches. The tulips above were grown from bulbs from Gee Tee which has a huge number of varieties at good prices.
