    I bought quite a few bulbs last year in Wilkinsons and i was pleased with them, those Tulip colours look awful to me.

    I really like parrot tulips and have had some spectacular ones from De Jager but these Hayloft ones look a bit muddy in colour. Not impressed. One thing about QVC bulbs as well from whichever company you buy from on air, they only last one year and then don't come back. Considering the cost of them they aren't very good value for money although to be fair the one year they do grow they are usually gorgeous.

    I bought shed-loads of tulip bulbs from Lidl last Autumn and had great success. They usually have them on 3 for 2 offer mix or match tulips, daffs etc. I always ignore the planting instructions and plant closer together for a better display.

    Lights on in the video yet Kathy and Gill are in the dark. So how on earth would it light up a garden it’s barely lighting beyond right up close to the light.

    I said the same about another light, the studio lights have to be dimmed so much that you can't see the presenters.

    Yet more lack of info in the description!

    It says it comes with 3 batteries, but no mention of what type. Are they AA batteries, which are very cheap?

    Or are they the large D cells, which are very expensive, and could be over 75 for 3 rechargeable ones (quick online search at Amazon).

    And non-rechargeable ones would cost a fortune in the long term with all the replacements that would be needed.
