Tulipomania reached its height in 1637 when one bulb of ‘Semper Augustus’, a white flower with red flames, sold for 20,000 florins, the equivalent of 24 skilled workers’ annual salary.

The market collapsed abruptly in 1637 but tulips remained popular despite the crash. However, they never again reached such frenzied heights.Nick Bailey marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare when he investigates the fact and the fiction behind the bard's potions and poisons at the Chelsea Physic Garden, and we visit Pashley Manor in east Sussex to unearth the story behind the planting of over 25,000 tulips.
