Tulips are one of the worlds most popular flowers, with over 2,500 varieties produced in the Netherlands each year. This spectacular book showcases a unique collection of rare and covetable tulips at Blacklands, the beautiful English country garden of tulip expert Polly Nicholson.

Combining the flowers rich cultural history with growing advice, Nicholson provides a comprehensive introduction to cultivating species, historic Dutch and English Florists tulips, and annual garden tulips.

Bringing to life varieties that date back to the 16th century, Nicholson demonstrates how these treasured bulbs and more modern varieties of these enchanting spring flowers can be grown today whether in herbaceous borders, naturalized in grass, in containers, gravel, meadow settings, or in the garden for cutting.

The Tulip Garden Reviews

'Pollys passion for tulips is completely infectious and the enchanting sanctuary she has created for them beguiles and delights from every single page of this book. It will undoubtedly become the tulip lovers bible and might well generate a twenty-first century episode of tulipomania. Welcome to a new addiction.' Shane Connolly, floral designer and author

'One of the most beautiful and transporting books written. Polly has captured the beauty of the historical tulips as they were intended when they were at their height of fashion and desire. This is a must-have book!' Arne Maynard, Garden Designer
