Welcome to our new Summer & Autumn collection of flowering bulbs and plants. This season we are bringing you the much promised OT (Oriental Trumpet) collection. These are absolutely suited to the Australian climate. We are also bringing some exciting new orientals, LO lilies, dahlias and hippeastrums.
In July we said goodbye to Margaret Merry, mother of Bronwen Roberts-Thomson. Margie was a beautiful floral artist, a plants woman and gardener who inspired us all.
On the farm the mad rush between rain periods has finished, all the lilies are dug and we are turning our minds to tourism. The two new grandchildren are picking up lots of new words and running more than not, which keeps our hands full. Thank you for your continued support and, as always, your insights and suggestions are very welcome, either verbally, by email or a comment on your order form or by facebook.

Our open days for 2014 will be from the 27th September - 17th October. This is the time when you can see the tulip fields in full bloom and the visitor can walk around the fields and through our displays. Tulips are planted in March/April and then harvest begins in December and bulbs despatches start in February. And so the cycle goes on. Of course there is also the dutch iris season which is almost the same as the tulips and the liliums which are almost the opposite.
The Table Cape Tulip Farm is a must see in Spring. For around 26 years we have had excited gardeners, and anyone who enjoys an uplifting colour experience, finding their way to the farm in Spring. This year, 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.
We send your plants and bulbs labelled and carefully packed with instructions. We start despatch around the beginning of September and continue through until end October or until stocks sold out. 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. Postage within Tasmania is $9, to Victoria, NSW and SA $11.954, Qld & NT $13.95 and WA $16.95. This will be added on at the end of the ordering process.
