A 128 page fully-illustrated book "Flames and Feathers" celebrating English tulips was published earlier this month. It's a great read and worth purchasing for anyone with an interest the growing and showing of tulips. It includes chapters on cultivation, showing, growing (including hybridising and raising from seed), tulip virus and social history. The illustrations provide a comprehensive overview of the very many varieities - a couple of many illustrated pages are captured below.

To order the book make contact through the webpages of the www.tulipsociety.co.uk

2014 pictures - alas I went with uncharged battery! Hence only few shots

Due to the odd spring all the growers south of, say, Doncaster had no flowers to show whereas those further north were reasonably especially from Scandinavia.

Teresa Clements (Harrogate) won many of the classes. 

Interestingly, flowers brought from growers in Sweden and Denmark also did well - usually their blooms are too late for the show. They came on the plane neatly wrapped in shoe boxes to prevent being crushed.

It was still a great show even if entries were down .
