Steve will share his long experience of growing hundreds of species and selections, which will quickly usher you forward in the learning curve!

Generally the best tulip display is around the middle of April, but the peak varies somewhat according to the weather. Each week all through spring the landscape continuously changes as the many plants of our extensive collection come into bloom. You need to visit several times to experience the fullness of the season!
