Apricot Parrot has all the colours of the sunset! Shades of apricot swirl across the ruffled petals in a spectacular display of rich, warm colour.

 

Note: Bulbs require chilling to initiate flowering. We provide them to you pre-chilled. After the first flowering season, if your winters are cold enough (generally, if you receive frost for a period of time), you can leave them in the garden to perennialise. If you do not receive frost, you will need to take them out, refrigerate them for 3 months or longer before planting again the next autumn.

 


5 bulbs per packet.

 

* PLEASE NOTE: Autumn bulbs only ship from February *

 

* Flower seed for Summer planting and Hydrangeas ship now. To ensure you receive your flower seeds and Hydrangeas now, do not add any Autumn bulbs (Ranunculus, Anemone, Daffodil of Tulip) to the same basket.

 

* If you have Autumn bulbs in your basket TOGETHER with summer seeds and/or Hydrangeas, you will receive your seeds in Jan/Feb only, which will be too late for planting them.

 

* IN SHORT, if you want summer seeds or Hydrangea plants, make sure it is placed in its own order (which will ship now), and then place a SEPARATE order for Autumn bulbs.
