Description

One of the favourite seasons of the Farmer Gracy team is by far the spring season! As an official exhibitor at Keukenhof we are fortunate to visit the largest spring park in the world on a daily basis to haunt and look for the newest varieties and we must say it gives us plenty of inspiration. We came across our 'Floating Doubles' collection and we returned every day to examine the progress of this true beauty! Double tulips combined with a carpet of grape hyacinths. It almost looks like these double tulips are swimming in a sea of Muscari flowers. Great combination and we are proud to offer this collection to the UK gardeners community. Very long flowering period until late Spring!

Each 'Floating Doubles' collection package contains:

  • 50 x Double tulip bulbs
  • 50 x Muscari armeniacum bulbs

Needless to say, all bulbs are top-size for an optimal performance.

We always use the best quality double tulip bulbs for this collection which means that the varieties we choose to create this look may differ from year to year. The double tulip varieties used in this collection may not be the same as the varieties pictured, and there will be a slight variation in colours.
