After the freezing winds last week I was pleased to see that the greenhouse heater did its job and maintained the temperature at just above zero centigrade. The tulips in pots are taking much longer to flower than when there is more sun and more warmth to induce them to flowering.
This week’s tulips have looked interesting for some time as they have white edged leaves. I wasn’t sure if I would like the effect when I bought them but the white markings which continue around the flower head certainly look attractive for much longer than the plain green. I think these would be good in the garden or in pots on the terrace too so will investigate other colours in this range.
Below are some images of the other tulip that I’ve been enjoying for the last few days.
OK, it’s not black but I love the green and purple of this tulip.
I think if the bulbs had been larger they would be more impressive.
