Tulips are one of the most recognisable plants in the garden – not to mention one of the most loved.
Tulips have been cultivated for centuries and historically, they’re a very significant plant. In the 1630’s, one bulb was worth a small fortune. In fact, in the Netherlands, or Holland as it was then, there was a real fad. It was called ‘Tulip Mania’. People went mad on them and indeed, one bulb might have been worth more than the cost of a horse and carriage, a house, or even a hotel!
Luckily today they aren’t quite that costly which allows you to enjoy one of our beautiful Tulip arrangements.
