Beautiful! 😍 Advice time please Richard, my tulips are fading now (they're in pots, 5 per 2 litre plastic pot). What is the best thing to do now if I'd like to keep them going for next year? I've only ever grown tulips in the ground with limited success and have been much more successful with pot grown ones.

Tulip 'Apricot Perfection' - another great reliable tulip which reliable returns each year and these are now in their second year. They all get a good baking too during the summer months. 👍🏼😊 #tulip #tulipaapricotperfection

Slowly changing colour as it opens out, this will eventually be a lovely Apricot colour. Voted by the public as one of the top three favourites on display at the RHS Wisley Gardens in 2014, so have high hopes for this one 😁 #tulip

@Kathy for the spaces I've cleared, definitely full to the brim (allowing for growing space) - but I'm only about three quarters through my garden. Next year I'll tackle the front garden, back left hand side border near the house, and then a patch down the bottom to develop a veg plot and get a green house 😊
