A perennial favourite among flower-buyers, Tulips is next in the strand of Pavilion’s successful and stylish floral gardening companions. Spectacular photography, inspirational commentary and no-fuss gardening tips show you that anyone can grow and enjoy tulips at home.

With tulip production in the Netherlands reaching a record high of two billion in 2018, it is clear that the world continues to be enchanted with these beautiful bulbs. Fringed, serrated, frilly or smooth, tulips have over 3,000 variations and their diverse textures mean that they can work well in almost any scenario, from vases to garden plots, from romantic bouquets to wedding boutonnières.

From the fascinating history of the tulip, including where they come from, tulipmania and bulbs grown today, the book curates over 50 of the most beautiful varieties, detailing when they bloom, their size, and, of course, what they’ll look like. From the fabulous flushed-with pink petals of La Belle Époque and the raspberry swirl of Carnaval De Nice, to the crystal-fringed rim of Fancy Frills and the fiery form of Double Flaming Parrot, youll discover a stunning range of specimens to grow, including historical and temporary varieties.

With engaging commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, this book will appeal to everyone who appreciates the majesty of the tulip.
