Having planted up the Rose Garden we had a large number of tulips left over, where to put them? We decided that the orchard we be a good place for them, if not the only place for them, see blog 'Not Long Now'. Well, we couldn't have hoped for a better result, the apple blossom flowers is complemented so well with colours of the tulips.

Accident or By Design
Sometimes we achieve planting success by accident and sometimes by design. At the end of November the Tulips 'National Velvet' and 'China Pink' were planted in the Provost's Rose Garden in the hope that the colours, pink and deep crimson, would complement the young rose growth and mirror the summer colours of the roses. This has been very successful and the results were exactly as we had hoped.
