A- | A+

As you may now be aware our huge selection of spring flowering bulbs are now in store and now is a great time to plant them so you have a wonderful, colourful display come spring time.

Our bulb expert Nicky Peto always gets lots of inspiration from her visits to the Keukenhof Gardens in Holland and has chosen all of the great varieties of bulbs for Coolings this season.  Plenty of old favourites can be found as well as a few new varieties.  

Bulbs provide great colour and structure to your garden.  Try some of these beauties to fill your garden with colour come spring...

New for 2018:

Tulip 'Danceline'
Famous for appearing in Monty Don's garden last summer, this Tulip ‘Danceline’ has an exceptionally long flowering time. While the flowers are still closed, the outer petals show off their fresh-green flare, then they gradually open to reveal dainty little pink stripes on the inner petals. Not only does ‘Danceline’ look fabulous in the garden, but it makes a brilliant cut flower too, lasting well in the vase and providing the big key

New for 2018:

Tulip 'Labrador'
This reddish brown and black coloured Tulip was introduced in 2018 and has a very fringed and sturdy flower. The unique shape and colour make this variety adorable and just as friendly as the dog breed. Tulip Labrador is excellent for those who want something special in the garden or vase.


Allium 'Ambassador'
A relatively new variety, but this allium has already picked up a coveted AGM, wowing the assessors with its large, spherical heads (up to 18cm across) of deep purple flowers. The flowers appear over a prolonged time and even after the flowers had faded, the seedheads remained attractive for several weeks. As well as offering a long season of interest in the border, 'Ambassador' is also an excellent variety for cutting and adding to both fresh or dried arrangements.

Oldies but goodies...

Narcissus 'Thalia'
One of our all time favourites is Narcissus 'Thalia', with its dainty pure white nodding heads which last well.

Tulip 'Casa Grande'
The stunning large flowered, scarlet Tulip 'Casa Grande' makes a distinctive powerful coloured display. 

Tulip 'Synaeda Amour' with 'Muscari Arnaenicum'

Underplanting tulips with other bulb combination work really well and we particularly love this combo... 

Tulip 'Ballerina'
This is a dainty lily flowered Tulip with a lovely scent.

Narcissus 'Thalia', Tulip 'Princess Irene', Hyacinth 'Pink Pearl' and 'Peter Stuyvesant'
A lovely combination with Hyacinths giving a powerful perfume.

Tulip 'Queen of the Night'
This is an all time favourite, superb dark maroon black flowers giving a sophisticated look to your display. 

Tulip 'Estella Rijnveld'
A popular parrot Tulip with feathery red/white flowers, looks stunning in a vase.

Tulip 'La Belle Epoque'
An unusual creamy caramel pink colour, very dramatic when fully opened.

Tulip 'El Nino'
This is a bold Tulip in every sense, large lily flowered, no two flowers are the same - some speckled, some quite orange.  Carried on tall strong stems, when the flowers open they are iridescent. 

Iris 'Katharine Hodgkin'
A delicate dwarf Iris with exquisitely marked petals.

Fritillaria 'Aurora'
Makes an imposing statement piece.  Great to plant at the back of borders.
