Here we are, in autumn and I have just finished my tulip planting for next spring, with the optimism and excitement this brings. I have ordered more tulips than I have had before, due to the joy that this year's tulips gave me. Above is Ballerina, from my garden in April/May this year. The other photos are from the Peter Nyssen website, which is where I got all my bulbs from, and if the quality is the same as last year, they should be terrific.
I have kept some of these Ballerina bulbs and have put them together with some Black Parrot, also from earlier this year, in the same pot, to see whether they will flower next year, as the flowering quality can drop and most advice seems to be to treat tulips as one year only flowers. However, it's a bit of an experiment and I shall report back.
