The elegant and beloved lily flower is known for its large, fragrant, and solitary flowers with six petal-like parts, leafy stems, noticeable stamens, and characteristic star shape. The latter varies among different types of lilies. It is a rather tall species that comes in a wide range of colours and its petals are often covered in freckle-like spots and brush strokes.
In addition, this flower is the perfect resort for pollinators! The lily bursts in symbolism and is very suitable for any special occasion. Browse through the different types of lily species such as ‘Asiatic’, ‘Oriental’, and ‘Oriental-Trumpet’ in our wide collection and select your favourites!

Planting tulip bulbs
Tulips are spring flowers; tulip bulbs bloom in spring and are planted in autumn (from September to December). Tulip bulbs need frost to grow and bloom. Plant the tulip bulbs about 10 centimetres apart and allow for a planting depth of about three times the bulb size (detailed planting instructions can be found on the back of each package). Tulip bulbs are ideal for planting in between other spring bloomers or perennials.
Tip: Crazy about picking flowers? Plant some extra tulip bulbs! Most tulips can be used as cut flowers; put them in a vase and bring spring into your home.
Different types of tulips
Tulips are divided into several categories. The two most popular types are the beautiful large-flowering triumph tulips and the short botanical tulips. Next to these varieties, Jack the Grower offers a wide range of tulip bulbs, such as single and double tulips, (double) fringed tulips, peony flowering tulips, viridiflora tulips and parrot tulips.
