Welcome to another glorious collection of spring flowering bulbs.
The farm experienced a very cold and frosty winter in 2015 followed by a dry spring. The end of winter was marked by a blooming field of hyacinths making a spectacular return to the farm. These were followed by a tall crop of tulips that had thrived in the frosty winter conditions and were enjoyed by many under sunny skies at the farm open days.
Highlights of the range this year include some fabulous new tulip varieties, the return of hyacinths to the catalogue and a wonderful range of alliums to add height and texture to your bulb and perennial gardens.
The little girls continue to grow (although they are not any easier to take a good photograph of) and enjoy exploring the garden and farm.
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 March 2016 and continue through until the end of April/early May 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 April so please ensure the you have placed your order by early April. 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.
