Spring Tulip Spectacular

Even from afar, there’s no mistaking the arrival of spring as thousands upon thousands of flowering bulbs unfurl, their glistening hues forming a multi-faceted jewel in a living setting of sombre woodland. A thatched cottage sits off-centre in this isolated country setting, with colour-themed beds of tulips and bedding plants swelling outwards and upwards, terraced into the hill in undulating waves of colour. Derek and Lin Walker have masterminded this remarkable display in their half-acre garden, planting some 20,000 bulbs interspersed with bedding plants such as pansies, forget-me-nots, bellis daisies and polyanthus. ‘After a long, cold winter, tulips bring a welcoming blaze of colour in a way that no other early-flowering bulbs do — whilst snowdrops or cyclamen are lovely they don’t have anything like the visual impact,’ they believe.
