You do not always associate Tulips with fragrance but here is a selection that may be worth trying.

Tulips do not need to be planted until November but if you want specific varieties it may be worth getting your order in sooner rather than later.Now is the time to check what is flowering well in your area and select you favourites.

If you can’t get to a specialist nursery try mail order as your bulbs will be supplied at the right time and in good condition.
