When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Just love how these little #tulipa-turkestanica are like weather vanes, opening when the sun shines and closing up again when it clouds over ☀️🌤⛅️🌥☁️

Thank you Elise. I’ve grown them in pots before but this is the first time I’ve grown them in the ground @Auricula

Sunny day then late afternoon 💛 I’ve grown these before but only in pots. Hoping these ones will be happy here and make it their permanent home 💚💛 #tulipa-turkestanica

I was just looking back at my old posts of this tulip and saw that I had hoped to come down to Pottertons some time. That would still be good but Covid has played with time 🙄😂 @pelly

Such a little sweetie 💛 This is the only one left from several I bought a few years ago. I blame the bank voles, again... 🙄 #tulipa-turkestanica

22 Mar 2019 • Really enjoying these little beauties bouncing around in the breeze. I’ve never grown them before and would love to know if they would be as happy if I planted them in the ground 🤔 Any thoughts peeps?

Mine are in the ground, but I'm thinking of moving them as they're at the top of the garden and I can't see them, will probably still put them in the ground though. 👍🏼😀

Thanks Sarah. I might do that in the autumn. I just think they might do better in subsequent years in the ground 🤔

They’re in Lincolnshire aren’t they Jane. Are they far from you? I’d love to visit. I think they do an open day. I’m definitely going to order a few more bulbs from them for next year 😍 @pelly
