Tulips have been cultivated for centuries and in the 1630s, one bulb was said to be worth a small fortune. In fact, in the Netherlands, or Holland as it was then called, referred to it as 'Tulip Mania.' with one bulb worth more than a horse and carriage.
Tulips come in a wide range of shapes and colours. From the traditional goblet shape, to the lily-shaped and those with fringed and feathery edges and a multitude of bright colours.
Feeling inspired to grow your own? Tulip bulbs should be planted at the start of autumn or early winter. Plant them in a good, rich, 'composty' soil, add some fertiliser and you'll have a wonderful show of tulips come springtime.
