Tulip Extravaganza at Forde Abbey

Nothing screams spring like the tulips. They come in all shapes and sizes with their flamboyant colours and frilly flowers.

Here at Forde Abbey, the garden team spent a few weeks last autumn planting 50,000 tulips and we are expecting an explosion of colour this spring.

We have chosen 35 different cultivars. To name a few, there shall be swathes of T. ‘Salmon Impression’ and T. ‘Cairo’ for the ones who believe beauty is in subtlety, T. ‘Fire Wings’ and ‘Ballerina’ for a splash of colour and masses of   T .’Carnival de Rio’ which are not for the faint hearted. Most importantly, there will be a pandemonium of parrot tulips in various heart warming colours welcoming you all. A carefully selected mixture of wild species has been planted in other parts of the garden to blend in harmoniously with the wild flower meadows.

We would like to particularly point you towards our Tulip Swirl which is very popular.  Thousands of visitors come from far and wide every year to see our displays and we look forward to welcoming you all.
