Tulip festival in North Berwick

Those attending the Caley show will know that daffodil enthusiasts organise their flowers into  13 divisions; all are shown on the back of the show schedule. Tulip growers use 15 divisions and these are the basis for the tulip display organised by North Berwick  in Bloom this spring. Over 2000 tulip bulbs have been planted in tubs around the town and at the war memorial while several species tulips grow in the  restored Edwardian rockery in the Lodge grounds. The railway station tubs have over 10 cultivars.  A free leaflet describes  the 15 types of tulip and  has a location map. Copies are in several shops, the Seabird Centre and tourist office.  Not all tulips flower at the same time; some species and  T.kaufmanniana cultivars are already going over. A tulip tea with edible flowers- in the form of tulip shaped biscuits -will launch the festival in the Abbey Church hall by the Edinburgh bus stop on Saturday afternoon (31st March).
