I do wish we could grow tulips like that here, we get one shot - and that is if we buy the bulbs new each year prechilled. Love tulips and great article.

I bought hundreds this year knowing they probably will not comebck up. But they are and were so beautiful. I don' buy mine prechilled, too expensive. I put them in my refrigerator for 6 - 8 weeks. Takes up a lot of space so I bought a cheap little dorm fridge.Works great. Hope you had good luck with yours. They sure come and go quickly.

Beautiful and very interesting. My daughter who dearly loves tulips will enjoy reading this. I have much the same thing going on with daffodils but not nearly as organized as you! But I have had blooms since Feb 7 this year and will have some all through until May unless we have a super hot spell. It delights me, and of course daffs are easier to grow and not attractive to pests.

It's too bad they won't come back for you folks in the south. I'd be like you, gardener413 and buy some anyway. :-) You can get them cheap.

You guys can grow plenty of beautiful flowers that I can't, so I just can't bring myself to feel THAT sorry for you. LOL!

Thank you for your kind words.

Mine started blooming last week. I live in coastal SC. I love them. I know they are only one time shot for us as well. But I just can not help myself. I buy most of mine online, Scheepers or Brent and Beckys and thrown them in the fridge for 8 weeks or so.

They are so lovely.
