WELCOME TO THE 2016 SUMMER COLLECTION
SORRY BUT ORDERS TO WESTERN AUSTRALIA ARE NOW CLOSED - THEY WILL OPEN AGAIN IN AUGUST WHEN A NEW CATALOGUE IS PUBLISHED ON-LINE
Welcome to a new year of beautiful late spring and summer flowering bulbs and plants. In addition to a large array of early harvest liliums we are thrilled to present a very extensive range of peonies in this collection. We are sure you will find something to delight. Late harvest liliums will be available in August (e.g. Orientals, OTs, L. speciosum and other speciality garden varieties, as well as dahlias and more).
A feature of this catalogue is ‘Terracotta Warrior’ a beauty from Tasmanian breeder Neil Jordan. We hope this is the first of many Australian bred varieties. It is a very exciting project for us and we can’t wait to offer them to you in the years ahead.
The family is well and everyone is growing up too fast, even the oldies. But we are staying young by being involved in new ventures and experiments. The latest is an enhanced interest in soil health and cover crops. We are determined to achieve more savvy and sustainable farming systems.
We had a wonderful tourist season in spring 2015 with many people visiting to see the spectacular sea of tulip flowers and experience the “secret garden” display area and Bronwen’s “I never promised you a bulb garden” exhibition. It was a great season with lots of sunshine, music, dancing, treasure hunts and other activities…we hope you were able to come and join in. If not you can mark it in your diaries for next year – 24th September to 16th October 2016 with the festival being held on Saturday 8th October.

We will start despatching our next season of bulbs and plants early June 2016 and continue through until early August or until stocks sold out. We send your plants and bulbs labelled and carefully packed with instructions. We pride ourselves in sending quality products so please let us know if there is a problem. Our liability is, however, limited to the value of the bulbs. We are sorry but due to Australia Post's recent quite substantial postage rate increases we have had to raise the postage costs a little this year, though as always we do absorb some of these costs ourselves. Postage within Tasmania is $9.50, to Victoria, NSW and SA $12.95, Qld & NT $14.95 and WA $17.95. This will be added on at the end of the ordering process.
Western Australia Due to the complexity of Western Australian quarantine we will send WA orders in a bulk posting around the middle of July so please ensure the you have placed your order by end June. There is an extra postage surcharge for quarantine inspection and treatment, included in the prices quoted above.
View our new Table Cape Tulip Farm dedicated website for events info and more information. The Table Cape Tulip Farm is a must see in spring. For around 27 years we have had excited gardeners, and anyone who enjoys an uplifting colour experience, finding their way to the farm in spring. As usual, there will be a fantastic show of tulips in the fields, one of which is open for you to walk in. You can venture inside our refurbished display area to see stunning floral arrangements and then enjoy a cup of tea and something to eat or wander through the art display. You may buy some tulips for a special some-one or maybe just yourself. Remember to bring your gumboots or old shoes as you will encounter the authentic farming experience. We hope to see you this spring.
