Sharon, Beautiful Tulips

Postby Sally » May 31, 2009 9:03 am

I have not been on in a while and was having a look this chilly (3C)
morning and just had to mention your tulips. I love the white ones.
Well, actually I love them all. I don't have any. They have never done
well here. Probably something I am doing wrong. Anyhow, I just
enjoy other peoples. Our neighbour, Bill, has some gorgeous
ones as well.

Hi Sally:
Would you perchance have less than good drainage?
I suspect that is often a problem with tulips...they are very "trial & errorish".

You could be right, Sharon. When I tried them it was before my
south facing gardens had been dug so all the bulbs would have
been in the front (north) garden. But we also had a problem with
the critters. They didn't like where I had them planted and dug
them up and planted them in other places. (LOL). We still get the
occasional tulip blooming in the garden that the little dears have
put there for us. Lord only knows whose garden they came from
but we just enjoy them.
