The tulip is a stalwart of the late-spring garden. There are hundreds to choose from, including traditional, single cup-shaped varieties, double-flowered cultivars and those with elegant, goblet-shaped flowers. Tulips grow best in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. However, they don’t always come back the following year and are therefore often best treated as annuals.

Tulipa ‘Tres Chic’ is a gorgeous, white, goblet-flowered tulip, growing to a height of 40cm. The petals are long and pointed, giving the flowers a ghostly, elegant feel. They are best grown in a border among other tulips, where their white flowers will complement more colourful blooms. ‘Tres Chic’ is perfect for growing as part of a spring container display, or in drifts at the front of a mixed herbaceous border.
