Seed Swaps

Tulip Attila

Got these free from J.Parker bulbs with Shirley white ones with purple edges see them together here.

They came out about 5 days before the Shirley ones and coloured up to the most gorgeous deep pinkish purple in the big pale daffodil tub with the pale creamy slightly frilled trumpet daffs, it flowered they same day they finished. Also 5 on the edge of the Evening Primrose bed and found some in a bag in the shed unplanted (oh the guilt).

In 2011 they started flowering 15th April and lost flower petals in week of winds by 15th May. Great value.

This planting is in the Mixed tubs garden .
